IAIE books are available on Amazon. If you will select to support IAIE through the Amazon Smiles program, they will donate 0.5% of your purchases to our organization, every time you shop on Amazon.  Why donate to IAIE you ask? Simply, we help schools be more inviting to students, families and staff. If students don't feel loved and cared for, they can't prosper. If parents don't feel welcome, they won't fully support the school. If staff don't feel cared for and valued, they won't give their all. This is a win/win for everyone!


So if you shop Amazon, please support us.
