Big thank you to Natasha Wing!
Big thank you to the author Natasha Wing who Skyped with our younger students during our Bookfest week at the end of April 2012 at Shigawake-Port Daniel School in eastern Quebec, CA! Our students and teachers really appreciated her respect of the Quebec culture. Our younger students always enjoy her holiday books. And our students’ favorite book is “How to raise a dinosaur”, a cute fun book. After her presentation, many younger students asked for “How to raise a dinosaur” in the library.
Thank you again Natasha and have a nice summer!

Frankie the walk n roll dogs virtual visit to canada
Kids in Canada meet Frankie virtually via Skype. They learn about Frankie and her disability and Frankie teaches them to overcome their own challenges by looking at things in a positive way.

Feedback from 4th graders in Canada
For my 1st test Skype a school in Canada agreed to have Frankie visit them via Skype. Here is some feedback I received from the kids:
I really enjoyed when I got to ask questions! I was very excited when I got to ask my question. Frankie must be a truly happy dog" Amanpreet, Age 9 "
Our Skype was so fun! I really like when Frankie put on her life jacket for the bathtub. I also liked her train costume. I really liked learning more about Frankie" Josh, Age 9"
My favourite part was when we found out what it was like to have a disability. I enjoyed talking to you and Frankie. I really liked the video of her walking. I think she should be in the Olympics." Cassie Age 9"
