Help Build Home Libraries for Our Students!


We are hosting a Family Literacy Night on May 7th themed, “Healthy Minds & Healthy Bodies”, in which our families can celebrate and learn the importance of language, literacy and good nutrition. One activity we are offering is the opportunity for families to “Build Your Own Home Library” by selecting quality, age appropriate books for their children so they can have access in the home. The lists below are themed for the event –nutrition/food/wellness– and listed by developmental age groups!

Please consider buying a book or two or three for our students!

Titles are available at local bookstore, Politics & Prose, or you can “pick and click” order through the Amazon wish lists below!

*When shopping for family and friends this holiday season, be sure to shop AmazonSmile. AmazonSmile donates 0.5% of the price of your eligible purchases to the charitable organization of your choice. Visit and choose Martha’s Table or follow this link.
