Win a Classroom Library of Inclusive Books

Read for a Better World giveaway!
Brought to you by Lerner Publishing Group

Read for a Better World provides an inclusive literacy collection and teacher resources that help students grow as readers and as people in the classroom and beyond.

We can’t think of a teacher who wouldn’t be jazzed to win a set of new books to share with their students. It’s even more exciting when it’s an engaging collection that helps students grow as readers and as people in the classroom and beyond.

That’s why we partnered with Lerner to give away a Read for a Better World Classroom Library to three lucky teachers! We’ll choose one winner from each of the following grade ranges: pre-K–1, 2–3, and 4–5.

Each classroom library includes:

  • 30 authentic trade books containing a diversity of stories, characters, and text types.
  • Books curated by educational experts to provide reading experiences for striving, on-level, and advanced readers.
  • 1 copy of Dictionary for a Better World, an inspiring, best-selling collection of poetry that serves as a prompt for inclusive classroom discussions and works as a starting point to the educator and student materials.
  • 1 storage bin.
  • 1 Educator Guide containing theory and lesson plans for whole class and small group instruction, as well as prompts for reflection, tips for partnering with families, teaching virtually, and more.
  • 25 copies of Read for a Better World Student Action and Reflection Guide
