My Students

Help! I need books! My kids are readers and we do not have enough books. I want action packed thrillers, touching stories, and books with animals in them to share with my students. Oh, and don't forget graphic novels, they are important too.

I need books, all books for middle grades!

I want to feed their minds with the books they need. I need all the memorable stories that you loved as a child and that they will also love. This project is showing the love!

My Project

My kids will read these books and love it! We have a limited selection of books to read, and we need new books. The books will be used for free reading, and classroom assigned reading. I put some graphic novels of classics in the shopping cart to give them a taste of the subject.

These books will be so appreciated.

I can picture the look on their faces when the books arrive. They will be so excited and wanting the read them all, and of course they will ask, "Can I take it home?" Giving these kids this opportunity truly does show the love!
