News from Monso Chi Preschool

The excite­ment is palp­able as the Monso Chi stu­dents explore the latest dona­tion to the preschool, books, books, books!  Much Ado Books (, a truly incred­ible treas­ure trove of a book­store in the beau­ti­ful Eng­lish vil­lage of Alfris­ton (Margaret’s home town), raised over $1500 to buy books  for the Bahia Honda Ele­ment­ary school and Monso Chi. Most of the kids in the bay have grown up with lim­ited expos­ure to prin­ted mater­i­als but are totally cap­tiv­ated once they get a book in their hands. With the help of Much Ado’s dona­tion the teach­ers and volun­teers are able to really focus on early and pre-reading skills and to foster an already nas­cent love of books.  Thank you, Cate and Nash of Much Ado Books.
