Mrs. C. from Richmond VA is requesting Books through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Familiar to Us but NEW to Our Students.

My students need books that are new to them - but familiar to us. Ramona, Babysitters Club, and of course the Chronicles of Narnia.

My Students

Hello there. I work in the library at a title one school with some amazing students and teachers. In the library we see students struggle with choosing a right fit book, always following the crowd as to what is popular at the moment. These books will open conversations with teachers and staff because we have read them before.

We love seeing our students find the perfect book for them.

Our students are anxious to become stronger readers at school and home. We are anxious to offer them new choices and help them become avid readers. As a school we want them to love reading as much as we do.

My Project

This project has included books that will be a great addition to our library. We will have familiar stories with a twist for our students to enjoy for years to come. These books will provide new adventures for our students.

Books like Ramona, The Babysitters Club and Jumanji are stories that as a child I read- It will be so exciting to see our students reading and enjoying them just as much.

These books have gotten a few upgrades over the years. The Babysitters Club is now a graphic novel. This type of book is popular among our students, especially our reluctant readers.
