Hooked on Books Finale
Posted 05/04/2017 04:22PM

Proud 1st and 2nd graders took to the stage on Tuesday, March 28th, to perform their musical finale for Hooked on Books. Hooked on Books is an annual event at CAISL where students in EC through 2nd grade read books by the same author and this year's featured author was Tomie dePaola. Students read his book Strega Nona Takes a Vacation where Strega Nona takes a vacation on the Italian coast. Then the story was, not only turned into a musical, it was adapted to feature a vacation that "Avozinha Feiticeira" took throughout Portugal, including Madeira and the Azores. The children danced and sang to popular songs illustrating her journey in a hot air balloon, on a fishing boat, through the mountains and all the way back to her home in Linhó. The set featured art work the children had done as a part of Hooked on Books and the result was an imaginative and colorful show that celebrated both a beloved author and beautiful Portugal.

CAISL is a student-centered educational community in which we challenge ourselves and each other to do our best and to make positive contributions to our diverse and ever-changing world.
