Global Fund for Children Books

Global Fund for Children Books has produced more than 30 award-winning titles for children from birth to age 12. Each book exposes children to diverse cultures around the world and in their own community. In this way, the books teach children to respect differences as well as appreciate the values and ties that bind us together as human beings. Global Fund for Children books integrate children’s perspectives, present positive images of children, and help to raise a new generation of productive, caring citizens of a global society.

Since the imprint’s inception in 1996, Global Fund for Children books have received distinguished awards and contributed to community engagement.

Through this project, The Global Fund for Children donated over 85,000 Global Fund for Children books, with a retail value of more than $1 million, to organizations and programs working with underserved children all over the world.
