Books for Change

Reading for enjoyment is an important part of education and self-learning. For the second year in a row, Few for Change scholarship recipients will each choose a Spanish book to take home with them at the upcoming Scholarship Ceremony. Read here about the success of the Books for Change campaign last year! October is National Book Month and we need your help to get these books into the hands of students throughout the Comarca. Below you will find a selection of wonderful stories, novels, and poetry from elementary to high school reading level, including several classics that may have inspired a love of reading in many of us growing up. Help us pass on this love of reading to our scholars in 2019 by donating a title to our book drive! Each book you purchase will go directly to a scholarship recipient and remain in the community for friends and family to share and enjoy.
