PIBBA's Saturday Story on March 17, 2012 began with PIBBA Webmaster Dr. Matilda Naputi Rivera reading a book on Rainbow Fish. She then asked for the children to think about the fish (guihan) and see how it relates to the story of Sirena. Thereafter, she read the story of Sirena, which captivated the children. The Read Aloud culminated with a coloring activity of Sirena and gluing of scales on the bottom half of Sirena to give her a 3D affect. The children had a meaningful literacy experience!

The Read Across America celebration hosted by the Nieves M. Flores Hagatna Public Library was filled with excitement for the young children and their families
who participated in the various Dr. Seuss literacy activities held March 3. Among the activities were the Lorax Hat Station, A Truffula Tree Planting Station, and Truffula Tree Cup Cake Station. The children also sang Dr. Seuss songs led by Joe Mendiola and children. A special shadow puppet show titled Lorax also delighted the children. Afterwards, the children marched in the Lorax Hat and Wacky Parade. The event ended with a 108th Happy Birthday celebration for Dr. Seuss with refreshments and cake!
