Seizing the opportunity to celebrate International Children’s Book Day (April 2nd)! Daniel’s Table donated 165 books (44 different titles) to Harmony Grove in Framingham. A read-a-loud for the children was held on April 1st in both English and Portuguese. Portuguese being the predominant language spoken at the school. This donation was sure to help their bilingual program.
Some community leaders joined us in the reading. Our special thank you to John Stefanini, Darlene Pugnali, Priscila Sousa, Keziah Pessanha, Leora Mallach, Noval Alexander, Tiffanie, Amy, Alicia and David Blais, Adam Steiner for reading. Also thank you Principal Juliana Kessler Marcos for hosting this event. Teachers and librarians were excited about the books and commented on how hard it is to find children’s books in Portuguese. We’ll keep the conversation going and we will continue to find ways to empower our community!
