One of the best things about reading is getting to share the joy with kids who don’t have many resources.

That’s the case in Montserrat, where storybooks are scarce and a class visit from an author–well, that doesn’t happen much, to say the least.

Illustrator Jan Dolby and I are flying to Montserrat next week, thanks to One World Schoolhouse Foundation’s Rainforest of Reading program. We can’t wait to meet all of the lovely children. We’re bringing Gabby bookmarks, teacher’s guides–and copies of the second Gabby book, Gabby: Drama Queen.

This blog post explains more about the Rainforest festival we participated in last year. So incredible!
