Review for Philadelphia Reads, Philadelphia, PA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

A couple years ago, I began my first years teaching and I knew that I would need to build a classroom library for my fifth graders. I began to panic because I was a week away from the opening week of classes, when my coworkers forwarded me to the book bank run by Philadelphia Reads. Once, I got to the book bank I felt like I was in a toy store. The books were already leveled, neatly compiled and in great condition. Of course, I was then able to expose my students to a myriad of materials. I am always referring other educators to the book bank for their literature needs. It is a phenomenal resource for the educator and students alike.
