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!

  3. I must say, as a lot as I enjoyed reading what you had to say, I couldnt help but lose interest after a while. Its as if you had a wonderful grasp on the subject matter, but you forgot to include your readers. Perhaps you should think about this from far more than one angle. Or maybe you shouldnt generalise so considerably. Its better if you think about what others may have to say instead of just going for a gut reaction to the subject. Think about adjusting your own believed process and giving others who may read this the benefit of the doubt.
