Eric Carle Celebration at Qawra Primary School

To mark one month from the passing of Eric Carle, the world-famous US children’s book author and illustrator who gave us many amazing titles, the National Literacy Agency in conjunction with the US Embassy in Malta organised an Eric Carle Celebration. The celebration was hosted by the Qawra Primary School with its head Ms Josette Dalmas and took place in the Kinder class of Ms Anne Marie. The special guest was Chargé d’Affaires Gwendolyn “Wendy” Green from the US Embassy in Malta who introduced the event and spoke about the importance and joy of reading from an early age. Ms Joanna from the National Literacy Agency did a fabulous reading of The Very Hungry Caterpillar by Eric Carle and the children participated fully in the event.
