I work at a very low-income urban preschool. Many of my students do not have any books at home. I have been using my credits and money to order books for them and to update the books in their classrooms. Since it is a preschool, we did not qualify for the adopt a school program that paperbackswap runs. I'd appreciate any help you can give to these children. At 3-5 years old, most of them greatly look forward to coming to school and just want to get the chance to learn to read.

Have you tried looking into Dolly Parton's Imagination Library? www.imaginationlibrary.com/
