Author inspires JK/SK students

Author and Illustrator Josephine Vaccaro-Chang shared her wonderful story, “We Are Colourful Friends”, with our Kindergarten class.  The students truly enjoyed the presentation as they had the opportunity to re-enact the story through the use of colourful puppets prepared by Josephine herself.  This enriching experience motivated the students in our class to create their very own storybooks and puppets.  Thank you, Josephine, for inspiring our students!!  We look forward to future workshops with you!!
