Elementary School: World Day of the Book, April 2016

Dear Parents,

We would like to remind you of the upcoming 13th World Day of the Book on Thursday, April 21, 2016 in the Elementary School. In case you purchased a copy of one of Mary Amato’s books, please place it in your child’s backpack that morning. The author will be happy to sign it. Please remember to include  small change for the flea market. A bag to take books home would be practical.

We are all looking forward to the World Day of the Book and our guest, Mary Amato, who will read excerpts from one of her books.

Kind regards,

I. Wrausmann and U. Eberhard, the Book-Team
