I am Carlos. I am the Coordinator of ATPE. ATPE is the organisation that Barbara and Sr Aurora set up to train kindergarten teachers.
Thank you for being kindly and helpful. Your sponsorship of Koellu Ki’ik-Oan (Little Rabbit) has printed 3,000 copies of the Picture Story Book. Now the picture story books have arrived in Dili, Timor Leste.
ATPE are very happy with your book. Our children in Timor need to learn and know new things for their life. The story book will be used by ATPE to teach the teachers how to read to the children at school. We also hope parents will read to their children at home.
Timor-Leste has some story books for reading but we do not have picture story books. The children enjoy the colours, the pictures, the problem, the character and the fun. We hope that we can build the love of story telling so that our children want more books and want to learn to read.
