Ms. Nakada from Los Angeles CA is requesting Books through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Celebrate Banned Book Week All Year Long

My students need more books! They are constantly seeking out high-interest YA titles like these 7 titles and these will help them meet their reading goals.

  • $250 goal

This project expired on January 22, 2014.

Hooray! This project is fully funded

My Students

Every year during Banned Book Week, certain titles get my students attention and I cannot keep them on my shelves. Help get these books in my students' hands!

My students attend a public school in California which represents the great cultural and socio-economic diversity of our city.

Some are avid readers while others struggle to find books to keep their interest. They have a wide range of interests and are constantly seeking out new books.

My Project

I am always looking to help my students find their favorite books. With these titles I hope students will find titles and authors to fall in love with and develop a life-long love of reading. The multiple titles will also help students dialog about these books and make reading a social experience.

Please help fill our shelves with engaging book titles my students will want to read.

A love of reading will help my students continue to grow this year in my classroom and for many years to come!
