Set to take place at the Academy on Commons Drive Unit 28 in Londonderry, the event will feature nationally acclaimed storyteller, Angela Klingler. She is known for her animated retellings of traditional world folktales, fables, myths and legends that bring together time, culture and curriculum.

Barefoot Books’ mission is to instill a love of reading and appreciation for the world’s multitude of cultures. The children’s book publisher emphasizes imagination, community, diversity, and creativity. Several of these wonderful books will be on display during the event this weekend.

Southern NH Montessori Academy offers an academically focused education to children through an integrated curriculum. Concentration is given to educating the “whole child” (all facets of the child’s being, including: intellectual, physical, emotional, social and creative aspects) with a strong emphasis of hands-on and experiential learning where children develop their passion in technology, science, visual and performing arts, foreign language and physical education. Complementing a strong academic core, the school offers an enrichment program that includes elementary Latin, creative arts (visual and performing), daily physical education, technology and Spanish.
Each year, the SNHMA early childhood and lower elementary students select a service project. Consist with their recent studies of the rain forest biome, the students are raising funds for Mokugift and World Wildlife Fund (WWF). For every dollar donated to Mokugift, a tree is planted in rainforests throughout the world. Contributions made to WWF help protect the future of nature. Through WWF, children have the ability to adopt endangered species helping to support global efforts to protect wild animals and their habitats.
