Book Series

The Foundation for Tulsa Schools is excited to announce Celebrate Tulsa!, the second book in their children’s series. It is written and illustrated by Tulsa Public Schools teachers, students, and staff. From the annual Martin Luther King, Jr. parade to the Tulsa Greek Festival, this book highlights the multitude of events and celebrations that take place in Tulsa each year. Celebrate Tulsa! honors the diversity of cultures, races, religions, languages, foods, traditions, music and art in our city and serves as a reminder that even though we may not share the same beliefs or backgrounds, what we share in common is greater than what makes us different.

One-to-One Literacy Model

In addition to highlighting Tulsa’s unique attributes and building a sense of community pride, a goal of the Good Night Tulsa project is to promote the love of reading and enhance literacy competence for the children of Tulsa. 

We have a created a one-for-one model; for every book sold another will be donated to a student at a Tulsa Public Schools Title 1 elementary school.

Sponsorship opportunity

The Foundation for Tulsa School has published two highly acclaimed children’s books – Good Night Tulsa and Celebrate Tulsa!. Both hardcover books were written and illustrated by the talented teachers and staff of Tulsa Public Schools. The goals of the Children’s Book Series are to highlight Tulsa’s unique attributes, promote reading and literacy amongst TPS students, and instill within children and adults a sense of pride for our great city.

Sponsorship of the Children’s Book Series enables us to continue to underwrite these amazing book projects.
