 Readings Personified through Story-telling

While younger children read Llama Llama Red Pajama
older children read a Caribbean authored book My
Grommit and My Life and Times which was donated
through the Bridge Foundation Read to Rise program
which promotes Caribbean authored books to raise
cultural awareness among school children.

School readings of My Grommit My Life and Times
were personified through story telling at schools. Errol
Fabien, a television personality memorized students at
Nelson Street R.C. Boys and Girl through storytelling
inspired by the Read to Rise folk tale.

Private School experienced the story through the
words of author who wrote the book. Andy Campbell                            At St. Andrews
gave an historical record of Grommit and shared why          Lee Ann Forbes, Miss Trinidad and Tobago, 2011
vultures like Grommit should be protected because of
their efficient role in eating garbage and human left        “Reading opens on your world to new ideas and

diet requirements for a vulture survival.                                   at least once a month.”

Other schools read Grommit in school assemblies             At Nelson Street Boys and Girsls R.C. Schools
                                                              Errol Fabien, storyteller, Television and Radio

                                                             Story-telling is part of who we are and it is way
like Grommit

Even younger children listened to the Grommit stories
read by their teachers.                                       SUPPORT FOR READ FOR THE RECOR DAY

                                                              for the day and helped to bridge global and
