Mrs. Barbeau from Los Angeles CA is requesting Books through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

When I Read, I Succeed!

My students need 11 classic novels by excellent writers. Classic, illustrated, full-color graphic novels will help reluctant readers love literature & English class.

Hooray! This project is fully funded

My Students

Many kids don't like reading until they get a copy of the Classics illustrated graphic novels . Suddenly, every kid's imagination is awakened and they begin to love reading. Even the most reluctant readers seek out Classics like The Invisible Man, Great Expectations & Frankenstein.

My students will be inspired by Classic novels that have been adapted for Classic Illustrations.

Students really get into books that are comic stories. Every student needs to be given the chance to feel as if they can succeed in reading a book. With great Classics, every child will succeed.

My Project

During E.T., students are required to read a range of different books. When students don't have regular access to the library, students don't read books they are interested in. In order to succeed, every student must have different levels of reading material. With your help, students will pass their AR tests and learn to enjoy English Literature.

Let's give all kids a chance to succeed in reading.

The books you provide for our students will give every student a chance to learn the love of reading. Help me give our students a great education!
