The Learning Community and BPIS welcomed author Alison Formento to Broadalbin-Perth for the summer reading kickoff event. Students from both schools gathered in the Margaret Robin Blowers Auditorium at the high school to listen to Formento emphasize the importance of reading and share stories about being an author. Formento signed copies of her books for the students.
Formento is the author of multi-award-winning nature picture books This Tree Counts!, This Tree 1,2,3, These Bees Count! These Seas Count! and These Rocks Count!
The event signals the start of the 2019 summer reading initiative at Broadalbin-Perth. For more details about this year’s theme “I Caught the Reading Bug,” visit our summer reading webpage.
