Which book would you share with a Bolivian child, if you had the chance?
We’ve been thinking about this question as we prepare for our Fourth Annual Festival of Reading here in Sucre this April. We’re busy organizing all of the books and resources that we’re going to use when we bring reading alive to the thousands of children and families on Saturday the 25th of April.
We’d love it if you could get involved with our campaign and share with our Facebook page and Twitter a picture of you reading the book you would love to share with a Bolivian child. We’ve put together a few of our favorites at the bottom of this email but would love to see YOURS.
If you could share your picture and remind your friends and followers what we’re raising money for (#4thFestivalofReading) then we would be eternally gratefully for your ongoing support for our cause! We can’t do it without you! And remember, a $10 donation can buy books for TWO children! #Donate10

Cinderella es el cuento muy hermoso que quiero compartir con una niña o uno niño Boliviano, porque nos enseña que a pesar de pasar por cosas duras, tienes la oportunidad de encontrar personas y cosas buenos, pero siempre teniendo presente que la humildad y la sencillez nos hace personas buenas.

I read how to eat them on the internet berofe I went, and I made sure to watch the others around me. You hold it on one end and peel off the tip. Some people then scoop out the insides with a spoon (but never going too far below the shell), and some people just go for it and eat very carefully with then open end of the saltena always up so the juice doesn’t spill everywhere.Yes, I think you are right that it is a little later in the morning. However, this spot I went to in Sucre is super popular, and I read you have to get there early, or they run out. They open at 8am. I think I went around 10am, and I was good. Didn’t want to risk it!Stephanie The Travel Chica recently posted..
