I am a first year Kindergarten teacher in Newport News, Virginia.  I work in a school in a low income neighborhood. Many of my students don't have access to books outside school.  I love to read and want to instill that love of reading into my students as well.  The only thing I want for Christmas is to give each one of my kiddos a brand new book of their very own.

I had my heart set on ordering  "There Was a Cold Lady Who Swallowed Some Snow" from the Scholastic Book Club because we read  "There Was an Old Lady Who Swallowed a Fly" when we were working on sequencing events and they loved it. However  $4.00 a book x 18 students is just too much for my first year paycheck.  I wish the book fairy would come to my school but since that isn't likely, I'm willing to do whatever it takes to send my students on their winter break with a book I know they'll love... that includes begging my friends and strangers for money.  Thank you.
