Bringing Reading Up To Our Level!

My students need a mobile book organizer.

What better gifts can we give our children than the gifts of knowing how to read, and having materials ready to read?

We love reading our library books, but we don't have a great way to organize them. Currently our library books are in laundry baskets on the floor...not so easy for browsing and selecting the next great read!

I would love for my first graders to have the benefit of a mobile classroom organizer, with roomy bins to hold both hardcover and paperback books from our school and classroom libraries. Having an "mobile library" on casters will allow us to move books where they're needed in the classroom and will give all students easy access to browse, choose and return books. Keeping them organized will help us to take better care of our books, too.

Your generosity will make our classroom "library" an inviting place for the first graders to visit, giving them the gift of reading in a very special package. No longer will they need to sort through laundry baskets to find the perfect book!
