Hi Justin, very cool program! I was wondering if you could share a few of the books that the class enjoyed most. I often wonder how important it is to have books that are culturally relevant or if some of the universal themes of childhood translate well cross-culturally. I'm interested in trying this out in North Carolina where many of the students are African-American. I also wondered how important you think it is to have children choose their own books. I could imagine unloading a thousand books unilaterally might not produce the same level of enjoyment and interest.
