Ms. Norwood from Durham NC is requesting Books through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Brave, Fearless, and Feathered!

Help me give my students books that are enticing examples of literature filled with bravery, humor, and resilience. Our students, from K through grade 5, will love these stories by Kate di Camillo.

My Students

My students come to school filled with anticipation. They arrive each day eager to explore new ideas, concepts, and ways of thinking. We have budding scientists, world travelers, doctors, dancers, politicians, educators, dreamers, and creative thinkers. My students come from single family homes, two parent homes and some live with grandparents.

They are creative, clever, spontaneous and eager to learn.

My students love school and all the new ideas reading allows them to explore. Good books make a way for imagination to soar!

My Project

These books will continue to grow the reading lives of our students. They love Kate Di Camillo and these new titles will enhance their love of stories featuring wildly fearless characters that encourage, humor, and lead them to love reading.

As Walt Disney said, “There is more treasure in books than in all the pirate’s loot on Treasure Island.”

This project brings more than a treasure trove of goodness! It will encourage my students to read more and reading more is key to becoming a better reader. Having a wide variety of truly exciting books provides an invaluable resource and helps me build students with strong minds.
