Yes, we are. Our parish recently adopted a new curriculum, and one of the units is fantasy. The novel, "Mrs. Frisby and the Rats of NIMH" by Robert C. O'Brien is an excellent novel to read. Not only does it relate to fantasy, but it also relates to Science Fiction, which is another unit we study. We are in need of some new HARDBACK copies of the novel. We have old paperbacks that are falling apart. We will not be able to use them anymore because of their poor condition. We need 40 copies of the novel. I teach 95-100 students per day, but a class set would be sufficient. I did receive several students from Katrina. I have enjoyed teaching them very much. We were reading the book when they arrived at our school after the hurricane. They were able to "catch-up" and enjoyed the book very much. Please consider my request. It would be appreciated.
