My reading class has fallen in love with the Captain Underpants series by Dav Pilkey. We have read three of his books in the series and the children can't get enough! Usually they are not enthusiastic about their reading time but for the past month all of the students have been eager to hear and read more about the two wacky characters in the series. Unfortunately the three copies I have of the book are tattered and old. I have a sign out sheet so that each student gets an opportunity to read the story on their own. I have searched for the other copies throughout the school but there are not enough copies to go around. If we could get four copies of each book in the series the students would be able to have small group instruction and book talks. This collection will serve many students for many years.
