Mrs. Vincent from Louisville KY is requesting Books through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Culturally Inclusive Books for Kiddos!

My students need a wide selection of up-to-date books that include many cultures and ethnicities, as well as, current family dynamics and demographics. These books are perfect for any Kindergartener through third grade!

My Students

My students are an amazing group of kiddos, coming from the lowest socioeconomic neighborhoods in the city, they persevere and achieve what some would never believe. They may not have all that they want, but when they come to school they will have all that they need to make their dreams happen and to let them feel equal to everyone around them.

Many of my students come to school hungry every morning, after the weekend the hunger is almost unbearable, so learning is an after thought.

For many children the only meals they will have are at school. Although circumstances at home vary, this is no fault of the children, we just want them nourished and taken care of and ready to learn!

Food, shelter, and security are the number one things on my students' minds. Many come to school ready to eat, as the breakfast and lunch they receive will be the only meals they have each day. The love they receive from teachers can be a deciding factor in many of their futures.

My Project

The Handprints leveled reading book set will provide the perfect literacy opportunities for thousands of students over the next few decades. This trusted and widely revered author has written books that appeal to children as well as includes words and sentence structure that has been proven to be effective in early reading.

The Handprints book series includes characters that are culturally relevant in our society and they also include family dynamics and situation from current time.

This book series spans the reading levels of entering Kindergarten student through Second Grade.

The affordability of the book set along with the quality of reading opportunities and challenges that are offered to students makes this book series a home run!
