I teach fourth grade in a forty-year old school in Antioch, California. Although our school is badly in need of structural repairs, it is my quest to focus on learning and share my love of reading with my students. My students love to learn from great children's authors. One of the spotlights in my classroom this year is going to be the Author's Chair. My classroom library is in need of great authors, though! Eve Bunting is a wonderful author who writes stories rich in details that address difficult issues, including racial prejudice, death, troubled families, and war; at the same time, her work is infused with hope and beauty. Eve Bunting is just the type of author I want to introduce my students to! Please help me to expand my classroom library and create an Eve Bunting Author's Chair by donating several selections of her award winning books to my class. My thirty-four students will love reading her books and learning about her story!
