A FREE early literacy program
for all 4-year-olds in Jacksonville!
Who can join the Jax Kids Book Club?
Children enrolled in any Jacksonville VPK program are automatically registered for the JaxKids Book Club.
If your child is not enrolled in a VPK program, resides in Duval County and is entering kindergarten in the fall of 2017, they are also eligible to join.
The JaxKids Book Club is designed to help children improve their school readiness skills and get ready to read over the summer before their kindergarten school year begins.
What do JaxKids Book Club members receive?
Each Book Club member receives a free reusable clear backpack filled with a set of 7 age-appropriate books, written about various historical, geographical and cultural aspects in Jacksonville. Families will also have access to the new JaxKids Book Club website where you can access interactive flashcards and audio books. A new Facebook page is also available for sharing photos and stories of adventures with Flat Pete (also included in the backpack).
