Please Piggie Please

My students need multiple children's books for enjoyment of reading and to help teach manners in practical ways. These include the Elephant and Piggie series, A Mouse and Mole Story and more. The power of politeness in books is powerful!

My Students

Do you remember sitting through stories your teacher read and feeling bored? Students need fun stories they can relate to. Piggie and Elephant books by Mo Willems offer enjoyment for young students. Many other books may provide for learning opportunities with manners or social norms.

This will impact 28 students of various ethnic backgrounds, in a low socioeconomic area in Michigan.

The students are in first grade and enjoy learning. Receiving these books will only help ignite the love of reading for these students. At home, many of these students do not have books available. Receiving these books will help us start a reading connection for at home.

My Project

These books will change the students lives by providing enjoyment for reading. A first grade reader can be very fragile! With books that catch their interest, the first challenge is taken care of. A request is also being made for hand sanitizer supplies. These supplies will keep classrooms clean at specific times, especially after lunch and recess.

Please support this project!

Every donation will directly impact students this year, and for years to come. Reading is so powerful! Even if you are busy and cannot physically make it to a first grade classroom, your donation will make your presence known. Thank you so much!
