We Like Big Books and Cannot Lie!

Help me give my students authentic text that will allow my students to connect to the characters and discuss story elements with their peers.

My Students

My students are turning into strong readers! They absolutely love reading new books and listening to stories being read aloud! They have great discussions centered around literature.

Many students in my classroom do not have access to authentic texts at home.

Our school is a Title I school and many students only experience with books and reading is at school. I want to make those experiences magical for my students.

Each child in my classroom deserves to connect and get lost in a good book. They crave stories and reading experiences that are authentic and connect to their lives.

My Project

These books are going to change my classroom significantly. Books can be one of the most expensive investments into a classroom, but that is how I would like to view your donation as an investment. Donating books would be an investment into my students future.

These books are going into the most deserving and appreciative hands.

These books are specifically selected because I know my students will connect to the characters and the stories. These stories will not only allow students to see characters and hear stories that remind them of themselves, but they will also learn about other cultures.
