Edmonton, Alberta 63 / 450 Books Given

Principal Christine.Simmons Our school population has increased and with a limited library budget it has been difficult to purchase new books for the students. Delton School is an inner city school in Edmonton and so we strive to let kids have access to current books. This is important to us as we want to keep our kids engaged in stories and to develop that love of reading.

Favourite books Some of our favourite reads are:
Elephant and Piggie books by Mo Willems
Percy Jackson series by Rick Riordan
Smile, Drama, Ghosts and Sisters by Raina Telgemeier
My Life as a Book by Janet Tashjian
Amulet series
The War that Saved my Life by Karleen Bradley
and ......almost everything that our teacher-librarian reads aloud!
