There has been a shift in demographics at my school and a change in grade level teaching assignment for me. Our school has a new 3rd/4th grade class where we didn't previously have one. I am moving from my carefully and lovingly established library for first grader readers to a woefully inadequate library for my thirty incoming eight and nine year old friends. I'm looking for a starter set of books for our in-class check-out library so children will have access to books to read at home. Is there a better way to start the school year than to have a box of new books arrive just for us? (There might be... I'm looking for some additional bean-bag chairs for my classroom reading nooks, but that is the subject of another proposal.) One of my former first graders created the super-hero, BOOKMAN. Bookman only ever uttered three words, READING IS POWER! You have the POWER to help these young readers!
