The best books!
Kathy Knowles and Osu Children's Library Fund have been supporting our summer reading camps and other summer reading programs. One third of the 4th grade students in the five villages where FAVL runs libraries are receiving "personal" books that are theirs to keep, and Kathy remembered that her Ghanaian publisher had some overstock in French, so she sent them up to us from Accra. Here is our Ouagadougou representative, Viviane Nabie, with the two books that we distributed, Fati and the Honey Tree and Sosu's Call. These are the kinds of books totally adapted and indeed written for the intended audience, and that will be read 100 times. Bailey School Kids In Trouble Again, however... hmmmm.... there's room for both of course!
