By all possible means...

When Lorna signed up to help in Calum's school library twice a month, she didn't realise that something else would also be involved, namely reading to the children now and again. However, the other mothers were delighted and decided that she should read an English book with a short Japanese translation. Since we had the book in both languages, we chose The Three Billy Goats Gruff. Lorna read in English, Matthew obliged by playing the part of the ugly troll, even dressing up for it, and Daniel did the Japanese version. 83 children and 5 teachers turned up to listen, one of the teachers even recording it on video! Another great way to meet the children and help out in the school.
