Hooray! This project is fully funded

This is my second year teaching, so I do not have a lot of resources for my 17 kindergartners who are so eager to read! My kids are really reading ahead of where they should be, and I would like them to read books with their parents at home that they can read and aren't too easy for them. These children have read the books that I have purchased for the classroom as take home books, but most library picture books are too hard for them. These 72 books would be appropriate for their young minds and would give the children the opportunity to be move forward with their reading. The kids that I teach do not have a lot of opportunities to read with their parents at home because they do not own many books. Imagine a child getting to finally sit down with their parent and read at night, and with the book on their level. The child will actually get to read to their parent! Children who read at home every day are more likely to become lifelong readers, so funding this project would significantly impact the future education of 17 kindergartners. I would deeply appreciate the chance to make this happen for these children.
