Not long till all the presents come flying in … so if you are in Breda and are having a Pre-Sinter & Pre-Santa clear-out, do keep The Little English Library in mind. We always welcome books in good condition for children aged 0-12. Both Little English School libraries at the Montessori+Breda & Prinsenbeek have so many new members that your books will be much loved by many children. Books can be dropped off anytime during school opening times at the Montessori+ Breda, just leave them with a note in the library. Many thanks
I am very lucky that I have so much lovely support in managing The Little English Library Project and this year, I am particularly lucky as I have a ‘child-librarian’ helping out at The Little English School Library Montessori+ Breda. So let me introduce you to wonderful Holly who has just moved to Breda and attends the Montessori+ in Breda. Holly loves books and has offered to help children with finding books and help us with shelving books during her breaks. Thank you Holly!
Not long until the yearly national children’s book event takes off in the Netherlands (Kinderboekenweek). This year’s theme is Friendship. As always, I have chosen three English books which align with the theme and have have some nice teaching ideas. You can see my choices / resources in the image and find them online here: https://abc.nl/schools. I have included Imaginary Fred as the Dutch edition is included in the KBW 2018. Any questions, do get in touch. Happy KBW 2018!
School is back and the English books are back too!
7 boxes of roughly 50 books have gone out to 7 local SWAP20 schools this week. I have been able to increase the number of books going to each school using the growing Little Library collection and ABC Bookstore books. The boxes are now full of fantastic books! Managed by Pernille, this project now supports 7 local Primaries.
And the Little English Library Montessori+ Breda is back open for business. I hope children enjoy reading our wonderful books. The shelves are a little ‘packed’ at the moment, bare with us … more shelving and best of all, more books coming soon.
