I've always dreamed of being able to provide my students with books that represent their culture, physicality, and home life. The books and flexible seating that I've selected for this project respond to social, emotional, cultural, and life needs that must be fostered to grow as students, and individuals. There is nothing more splendid than getting lost in a book, and it is made easier when the characters' lives, images, and culture match that of the child reading. Children possess the unequivocal ability to imagine far beyond the constraints of daily life, and I want to provide them with opportunities to see themselves represented in a larger world. I want them to sit in the cozy bean bags, pick up a NEW book from our classroom library, and feel overwhelmed with joy because they feel a kinship with the stories that they read. The majority of my students come to school because it is a community of care. They know at school they are fed, loved, warm, and appreciated - regardless of what happens when they step off of the bus. It would be a great privilege to see their faces when we have new books that mirror their lives in our classroom.
