Grumpy Publications goes to Africa!

Our great friends Jared Habel and his family recently travel to Africa with Grumpy Publications books! The school kids loved the books Thal Dixon had donated. Just as we do here in the US, every child got a book! School is different in Africa, some students get to school as early as 5:30am. School goes from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m. Monday through Friday. It has to end so early to get everyone home before dark. They drive 750 kilometers a day picking up all the students. They are using computers from the dinosaur age, no lie they still have floppy disk drives in Africa! They only have grades preschool to 5th grade. The classes are small and the kids are so well behaved. They literally cry when they have to go on holiday. They want to be at school. The education they receive is Christian-based and students move at their own pace.

The library is small, but the books are cherished! We are honored to have our Grumpy Publications books in Africa!
