ST. LOUIS (KMOV.com) -- Books for Newborns is an organization with a life-changing mission, to deliver age appropriate books to newborns under the poverty line.

The books are delivered through St. Louis hospitals, and each delivery comes with four books. 

Now, they've added a fifth book to the bag thanks to a partnership with St. Louis Black Authors of Children's Literature.

News 4's Steve Harris has the story on the book, and why it's such an important addition.
