An inviting space for kids. Daniel explains how books are organized and gives tips on how to make the library an extension of the classroom (which, unfortunately, is not part of teacher training in Guatemala).
Katy and Linda read the El Pez Arcoiris (The Rainbow Fish) outside during recess… …and then they led the kids in a couple of rounds of the Hokey Pokey.
Larry and Sue break out the bunny puppet. This little guy in the green and white can’t help but jump out of his seat and look squarely at the pictures every time Larry asks a question. Sue and the girls are enjoying themselves.
Word got out and kids flocked to the school on an afternoon when class was out of session. Cirilo reads to Linda. The boys listen intently to Cinderella. Volunteers Sue and Katy get in the act. And the kids gather ’round!
Linda reads to the kindergarten class. The kids enjoy El Patito (The Little Duck). Larry’s turn.
See him? He’s in there! Too big of a crowd to see him this time!
Volunteers Sue and Katy enter books into the computer system. Computers are installed while I work on a wall sign and Sue and Katy enhance their Spanish vocabulary. Daniel works on the book classification poster.
Local talent at work. “Do you read? I do.”
