Help me give my students interesting leveled readers to help motivate reluctant readers!

Hooray! This project is fully funded
My students are creative, thoughtful and full of questions! My school is a Title I rural school in a poverty area. 100% of our students receive free and reduced-priced breakfast and lunch.
Many students face various personal challenges even before they get to school.
In spite of those challenges, they come to school eager to learn. Several of my students struggle to read a sentence on grade level. For many, this is the first year they have been able to read a story and feel successful at reading.
My students love when they get to read independently or with a partner, but most of the books I have are black and white copies. They are boring to look at and do not capture the attention of my struggling readers. I would love to update my classroom library with books that encourage and motivate each of my students to read, and allow my student to take the books.
Providing take home books will help my students to continue to build their reading skills, to share what they are learning in class with their families, and in combination with the learning they are doing in class, to be able to accelerate their skills.
A leveled library is exactly what my students need, so they can continue to develop as readers and gain confidence. I have requested books that range from kindergarten to second grade. These books will be used daily to support and encourage the students to have confidence in their own reading ability and show their parents what they are reading at school.
