We’d like to express a greatly delayed thank you to Jacob Berkowitz for donating copies of his books to BuCL. Jacob, from Almonte Ontario, is the author of two children’s books:
Jurassic Poop: What Dinosaurs and Others Left Behind, and
Out of This World: The Amazing Search for an Alien Earth
After hearing about the BuCL project last Christmas, Jacob contacted us in Uganda and asked if he could send us his books. We were thrilled to receive them, and were happy to see that they were popular with older primary students. Our librarian is able to help the children understand the text and ideas in these book by translating difficult passages into the local language. The pictures in these books are definitely a big hit!
Just imagine the wonder and disbelief these books evoke in Bunalwenhi’s children! Thank you Jacob!
