My Students

My students are ... adventurers! They are so excited to land in the new places that we find in books. They love to find out more ... about everything! We want to peak our curiosity and delve into new cultures, new geographies, and new experiences. We want to improve our ability to read and to develop even better reading habits.

My students are vivacious learners.

They LOVE to have new books available to read and discuss with their friends. We've been so incredibly lucky to have two projects funded already. We want to keep the momentum going! Thank you to our donors ... you'll never know how much it means!

My Project

Children are having to deal with situations that they should never know anything about. Snow & Rose is a beautiful new title that takes on the classic fairytale of Snow White and Rose Red. With well-rounded characters, these sisters share their garden and their difficulties. This book is beautifully illustrated as well!

Children are growing in difficult times.

Katherine Applegate, the author of Crenshaw, has said, “Children know all about sadness. We can’t hide it from them. We can only teach them how to cope with its inevitably and to harness their imaginations in search for joy and wonder.” Those of you who are curious about Crenshaw may want to watch the 1944 movie Harvey. It's a feel good movie for sure!

By using chapter books, my students will be able to gain knowledge of how some children cope with difficulties. They will also feel the exultation of adventure and fantasy while challenging themselves to find the true meaning within written text.
