Peninsula Bridge Book Club

Peninsula Bridge Book Club

From Marvin Mok

I'm raising money to buy books for my book club for talented, underprivileged 6th-grade students in association with Peninsula Bridge. We're going to be reading The Watsons go to Birmingham by Christopher Paul Curtis.

More Info

My name is Marvin, and I've been working with Peninsula Bridge for the past 3 years as a Teaching Assistant. In this past year, I've been working with some bright 5th graders. We read The Boy who Harnessed the Wind by William Kamkwamba. Many of the students at Peninsula Bridge have English as their second language and often do not have the resources to read new engaging books. By teaching them the Watsons go to Birmingham, I hope to both improve their reading while teaching them about the challenges people of color face in America in the past and today. Each book costs about 8 dollars, and it'd be great if you could contribute. Thanks!
