I teach Kindergarten at a Title 1 school in Oakland, California, where we are currently transitioning from a bilingual school to an all sheltered English school. This year in Kindergarten we have one bilingual and one sheltered English class, whereas next year both classes will be sheltered English. Our population is 75% Latino, and next year my Spanish-speaking population in my class will rise dramatically as we mix the classes. I believe that parents are an essential part of a child's education, and at our school we try to involve them as much as possible in the classroom. Every morning before school starts we have parent/child reading time. Parents come with their children 15 minutes before school starts and sit and read to their child. I have ample books in English, but only have 3 books in Spanish. It is extremely hard for my Spanish-speaking parents to read to their children when I do not have the books available. To make them part of our community, I need to have these resources for them. A set of 40 Spanish books would provide the parents with a Spanish library that allowed them to read different books to their child without having to read the same book over and over again.
