We recently had to close our school's library to make space for additional classrooms. Now, the only access my students have to high-interest reading materials is what is available to them in our classroom libraries. The library in my Special Education Resource classroom is so important to the students I serve who are reading well below grade level. They come to our class for small group intervention to help them with foundational reading skills to help them work toward grade level expectations. The shelves of the classroom libraries in their general education homerooms have too many books beyond their abilities. In order for my striving readers to grow, they have to read (and keep reading!). I want my striving readers to have access to texts that kindle the spark of joy we can find when we lose ourselves in a great book. Graphic novels are amazing for my striving readers not only because the pictures help support their comprehension of the text, but also because they are not embarrassed to bring them back to their general education classrooms. It has been heartbreaking to see my students look through shelf after shelf for a book that might capture their attention or pique their interests, only to return to their seats empty-handed. I used reading interest inventories, my knowledge of my students and their same age peers to create this wish list of titles that I know can really make a difference in their lives.
