Hooray! This project is fully funded

I teach first grade in the South Bronx. Christmas is quickly approaching and I would very much like to be able to provide my students with two books each as a holiday gift. My students' families cannot afford to purchase books for their homes and I cannot afford to purchase the books on my own. I want my students to get a gift because for many of them unwrapping this gift may be the only thing they unwrap this holiday season. I also want them to receive books because they can be enjoyed over and over again. The two titles that I have chosen are classic children's stories. They also happen to be books that I did a lot of lessons with this year so the children are familiar with the texts. This is good because even if the students cannot actually read all the text, they know some of it, and this builds confident readers. I would be very grateful to someone who might be able to help bring some smiles to my students faces during the holidays and who would at the same time be helping to encourage the life long habit of reading.
