Welcoming America Children’s Book Giveaway

Welcoming America Children’s Book Giveaway!

I have a small collection of books – mostly middle grade books – about new Americans. These are stunning books I’ve reviewed on my blog on global lit for teens and YAs, Rabbit in the Moon. Are you a New Hampshire librarian? This collection is only for YOU. Please comment here on my blog, just a note about how you could use the books.

I’ve loved finding homes for my review books.  I’ve met educators from around the country and was happy a second grade teacher in Houston reached out to me and I could send her Pancho Rabbit and the Coyote.

Thank you, all who have entered.  I wish you a good Welcoming Week and year.

    Bethlehem is a small town in northern New Hampshire. To say we are not diverse is an understatement! I would love to add these books to our collection and use them in programming to introduce children to Americans of different cultures. We have several elementary classes that visit the library each week and this would allow us to put these books front and center for them as well as our regular visitors.

      Hi Laura,
      Thank you for your response. I know Bethlehem pretty well, though I haven’t been in the library. I’ll write a post when the winner is selected. More soon. Thank you! Terry

    Lincoln Public Library is located in the beautiful White Mountains of NH. Our children’s collection needs to diversify culturally. Thank you for your generous offer.

    Somersworth Middle School is a small school, ~350 students grades 6-8, in the Seacoast region of NH. We have a diverse population of students, many children of immigrants, in the school that could use more books that they can relate to. Thank you so much for such a generous offer!

    This is my eighth year as the “volunteer” librarian at St. Thomas Aquinas School in Derry, NH. In my first career as a high school English teacher I was privileged to teach “Literature and Film of the Holocaust” and “Multicultural Literature” I know the positive impact that can be made by offering students literature of diverse cultures and following the reading with meaningful, sensitive discussions. Your books would find a very welcome home in our pre-k to grade 8 school. Thank you for your generous offer.

    I am the librarian at Benjamin Franklin Elementary School in Keene, NH. Our school is lucky to house our district’s English Language Learner’s program, and have 42 (of our 240) students whose family members come from countries around the world. I am working this year to diversify our library’s book selection to include more books on diverse themes, especially books that celebrate the immigrant and refugee experience. The more our kids can see themselves in the books they read, the better!

    I am the Youth Services Librarian at the Gilmanton Year-Round Library. I’m launching a new program next week called Celebrate! This will be a monthly program to learn about a different festival or celebration from another country or culture each month. Our library is directly across the street from our K-8 school, so I normally have 20-60 children walk over on program days. I’m very excited to bring some cultural diversity to our little town. These books would be a great addition to the effort of my new program. Thanks for your offer and for promoting diversity!

    The Thayer Library in Ashuelot (village in Winchester) is a tiny library that acts as a informal visitor center for our town because we are directly across 119 from NH Covered Bridge #1. We get visitors from all over the world and I would love to show visitors that, while we might be out in our little corner, we’re still connected to the world!
