Oh, Boy!! We Need Help for Our Boys!!!

The cost of 5 book sets, including All About Weather Book Set and Community Helpers at Work Photo Book Series (from Lakeshore Learning) is $345, including shipping and <a target="new" href="http://www.donorschoose.org/html/fulfillment.htm" onclick="g_openWindow('http://www.donorschoose.org/html/fulfillment.htm', 300, 800, 'fulfillwindow');return false;">fulfillment</a>.

I am a first grade regular education teacher at an equity plus school. About 80% of our students receive free or reduced lunch. We have a Hispanic population of about 20%. In my class, 50% of my students are Hispanic, and 95% of my students receive free or reduced lunch. In first grade, boys love to read non-fiction books. They love books about sports, animals, how-to books, biographies, and science books. I have many books that are fictional, but not non-fiction. I am asking for your help to build my bookshelves with non-fiction books that I know my boys will love to read. I have found sets of books that will interest my boys. These sets of books include topics such as weather, habitats, continents and oceans, community helpers, and biographies. These books will definitely inspire my boys to pick up a book and read the type of books they like! Thank you for your time in considering this proposal!
