Goose books arrive in Tanzania!

My donated Goose books to Korongoni Primary School in Tanzania have arrived! They were hand delivered from a very good man called Emmanuel Alfred who has connections with Teignmouth (Goose Headquarters!) and Tanzania. 

Emmanuel was telling me the children are learning English and as it is a second language resources like my Goose books are really important for schools, especially as English books are hard to get hold of in these regions. I feel I have a responsibility as an author to help children with reading, and so to be able help underprivileged schools who are lacking the fundamental resources all the way in Africa is wonderful. To have them delivered by Emmanuel is heart warming as you know they are personally going into the hands of eager children excited and wanting to learn.
