Some Cozy Loungers for Some Cozy Readers

My students need 4 cozy lounges-or beanbags- to have places in the library to sit with books.

My Students

My students love reading in the library, but there is a battle over two bean bags brewing. They were previously donated by DonorsChoose, and now that some of my students have started reading, they like to hunker down in a bean bag and pretend they are Olivia or Max or Curious George.

I teach students from low-income families and work with children with diverse backgrounds and diverse needs.

The students love the library and love sharing books with their classmates in the classroom library. Many families do not have books in the house.

My Project

Please gift us with four beanbag chairs, so that we can create an inviting library and show children how they can calm their minds and bodies through reading and relaxing. Seeing their tiny faces completely absorbed in a story compels me to create a cozy library. They are excited about all the adventures that happen in stories, and love immersing themselves in worlds where animals talk and children rule.

Your help will encourage my students to not only read, but enjoy it and savor it as a relaxing and calming activity.

It will also encourage them to share a book with their friends, making reading a social activity.
