In education today, one of the most crucial subjects is reading.

If children read well, they usually excel in other subjects. As teachers, we are constantly encouraging our kids to read, but they often run out of books they find interesting. We are always looking for ways to increase the number of titles available to our students, so that they are able to find books they are excited to read.

North Canton Elementary School has recently become the recipient of about 50 children’s novels.

Amber Tulbert, a former teacher at NCE, was in a tragic accident a few years ago. She has recovered, but will be unable to teach again. However, her passion for teaching and for the children at NCE has not burned out.

She generously donated all of her personal books from her classroom to the students at North Canton. This will help us to expose our students to great literature.

We now have the entire collection of "The Hatchet" series by Gary Paulsen, as well as many of his other titles. Cynthia Rylant and C.S. Lewis are also among the authors. We are so grateful for Mrs. Tulbert’s passion for kids, and for the very generous donation that she has made to our school.
