Help me give my students diverse nonfiction texts for understanding different cultures and lives.

Hooray! This project is fully funded
Our school is a small rural K-2 building. Over sixty percent of our students receive free or reduced-price lunch. Despite their hardships, my students are growing and learning every day.
They are dreamers, thinkers, talkers, and questioners.
They have a love of learning that drives them and encourages others around them to be better readers and writers every day. They are our future and I want to give them a great foundation so that they can have a long successful academic career.
Reading workshop is my students' favorite time of day. They get to pick an adventure, curl up and get lost in a different world, learn about life around them and go to places that they can only imagine. About two years ago, our district adopted and implemented the Units of Study in Reading. Components of the workshop involve independent reading, shared reading and read aloud. Teachers are constantly asked to be creative and find or use our own money to purchase books that go along with what we are teaching.
These books I have selected promote the joy of reading, develop children’s vocabulary, and increase their ability to think, talk, and write about texts that fully engage their interest.They also provide this small rural community of readers a look outside their lives and into the lives of people around the world.
Each of these books are high-quality, nonfiction picture books with engaging illustrations that represent a variety of authors and illustrators, topics, themes, and text structures.
