Plus How Your Class Can Get Involved to Support Kids in Need
by Alexie Basil
To have a good night, Llama’s mama knows that children need a good book and cozy pajamas at bedtime. Just like Llama’s mama, Pajama Program is on a mission to provide all children affected by instability with those same good-night comforts!
Pajama Program is a nonprofit organization that supports a comforting bedtime routine for children facing challenges beyond their control by giving them their very own set of brand-new pajamas and a brand-new book—because they know that good nights are essential for a good day tomorrow.
Pajama Program is a cause near and dear to our hearts at Scholastic Book Clubs, which is why we’ve proudly partnered with them for the past decade on the Great Bedtime Story Pajama Drive.
Pajama Program Promise: “A Good Day Simply Isn’t Possible Without a Good Night.”
Experts agree that sleep is absolutely essential for physical, emotional, and mental health. That’s why Pajama Program is committed to making a bedtime routine the most critical part of the day and ensuring that as many kids as possible have comforting good nights.
Good Night Bill of Rights
Pajama Program works to distribute pajamas and books to children across the United States, including Puerto Rico. They have established Reading Centers, where the children they serve visit and connect with volunteers, spending time reading, and leave with a brand-new pair of pajamas and book to keep! Pajama Program’s work is guided by its Good Night Bill of Rights.
1 Million FREE Books and Counting…
For every pair of pajamas donated, Scholastic Book Clubs will donate a brand-new book to Pajama Program to give to kids who are affected by instability. Together, we have donated more than 850,000 pairs of pajamas and more than 1.25 million FREE Books.
