I normally fund requests for my classroom through DonorsChoose, but we are unable to create projects asking for book purchases until after January 10 due to the crush of the holiday season with Amazon.  None of the other vendors approved by DonorsChoose have my books that we need to give every student his/her first choice for our January book clubs in which we’ll be reading literary nonfiction and memoirs.  We are a Title I school with limited funding resources, so any purchases of these books to help my students are sincerely appreciated.  The books will be used for our January book club and then become part of my classroom library for future use.

My students previewed the books last week, and the books on the list below are their first choices.  I would love to make their reading dreams come true and have enough copies of their first picks by January 6.

If you are able to help make our book clubs happen, here are our wishes.  You can also see the wish list by clicking here; if you are not able to see my shipping address when purchasing from the wish list, please contact me directly, and I can provide you that information.  However, I believe I had corrected the settings on the list, and you should be able to see my shipping address.  In addition, Amazon gift cards are also welcomed if you would prefer to help us purchase the books in that manner.

A heartfelt thank you to Librarian Tom who has already purchased 6 copies of books from our wish list for us!  I also want to thank friend and fellow librarian Joe Fox for his purchases as well!
