Local author meets Summerhill children

Four-year-olds at Summerhill International School with Caroline Pover. SUMMERHILL INTERNATIONAL SCHOOL

Caroline Pover, author of the International Schools in Japan guidebook, visited children at Summerhill International School in Moto-Azabu on April 12 to read to the four- and five-year olds.

Ms. Pover had previously visited Summerhill to give a talk to the parents, after which Director Monique Keller invited her to read her favourite story to the children. The first short story in Elephants Don’t Sit on Cars, Ms. Pover’s favourite as a child, was followed by a class favourite, Walter the Farting Dog. The class teacher later reported that the students were evenly split in choosing their favourite, and are looking forward to another visit in June.
