Help me give my students accessible literature in Spanish for our daily silent reading time. Spanish literature can be expensive and these books will be used every single day.

Hooray! This project is fully funded
We used to be a small country school but have most recently experienced a building boom that has nearly doubled the size of our school in the last 10 years. Our school is steeped in decades of tradition and there is a lot of school pride here. My students are bright, inquisitive, funny and most of all hard-working. It is a joy to come to work each day and interact with my students. They have great interpersonal skills and are all around good people who are going to have a positive impact on this community and beyond.
Research has proven that the more access students have to the written and spoken word the easier they acquire a new language. I want to provide a silent reading time daily for my students but I do not have anywhere near enough books to provide this opportunity. The Spanish novels will be used on a daily basis and will be so appreciated by my students and me. It is exciting to see beginning Spanish students pick up a small novel, begin reading it and realize they can understand so much because these specific books are written at their level. Thank you!
