Went today to visit 4th Class at Gowran National School here in Kilkenny. They are officially (well, as far as I know!) the first class in the country to have read The Sleeping Baobab Tree. Was a lovely visit, lots of very interesting questions on the book – and they read The Butterfly Heart just before this, so lots of comparative questions. All good!
Thank you to their teacher, Emer O’Keeffe, who organised the visit. As music came up in conversation I was also delighted to hear that she had heard my brother’s band, Mango Groove, on a visit to South Africa – so for her, I have added in a video of one of their songs.
