Our third visit to Dela Paz Elementary School turned more pupils into first-time book owners! This time our talented volunteers also conducted simultaneous book readings in various classrooms. In collaboration with Lipunang Lakbay-Libro (3Ls, in English, Traveling Books Society) and St. Michael’s College student volunteers and readers, we presented our first ever “Mga Kwento ni Lola Basyang” (Stories of Grandma Basyang) storytime! Some pictures and a video!
