My only concern has been how to thank all of you. Unfortunately, none of the packages or invoices (except for two) gave any indication of WHO sent them. This happened when one friend sent an order last year, but I assumed the lack of identity was a fluke. However, it seems to be the norm (and Amazon won't tell me).
My original plan was to have the kids write thank you cards, but aside from a few folks who told me they intended to send books, I have no idea who all of you generous folks are!

Again, thank you for your generosity. As much as I am concerned about teaching the technical aspects of reading, I also know that it is equally, if not more, important for a child to develop a personal culture of reading - that reading would move beyond route dynamics to a pleasure filled experience. Every year I have students who turn that corner for the first time, and I know that part of that shift is due to having good books on hand and available when those moments come to fruition. Your donations give those moments opportunity.
