Kids get into books and books

| 31/03/2009

(CNS): Forty children from three local schools enjoyed a new reading experience during a field trip to Cayman’s newest town, Camana Bay. Students from Red Bay Primary, George TownCayman’s newest book store. Accompanied by Anne Briggs, Literacy Coordinator for Red Bay Primary, the children enjoyed a tour around the shop before they were taken out to Gardenia Court for a story reading and arts and crafts session.

The children listened as Anne Briggs read Honestly, Mallory! by Laurie Friedman, a book that has become extremely popular since it was chosen for Maples and Calder’s Whistling Duck Awards, which are held at Books & Books.

Afterwards the children dove into their crayon boxes and explored their artistic sides, creating wonderfully colourful drawings to take home to their parents.  The afternoon was such a success that a second field trip is being organised.
