From time-to-time the HUB staff comes across videos that nicely showcase books we love. One of these books is Unspoken by Henry Cole. In the video attached here, you can see Henry explaining and expanding upon the details found in his wordless book. We also like this book because it highlights one of our new ISB values “courage.” Enjoy!
We’d like to take a moment to remember the wonderful author, leader and thinker Amy Krouse Rosenthal. Our ISB kids love her many wonderful books and genuine, heartfelt messages. Here is a video that she dedicated to the International School Bangkok after her author visit here several years ago. It is all about the importance of KINDNESS. She dedicated her life to spreading kindness and we appreciate the positivity she spread throughout the world…

This week we experienced the wonderful world of visiting authors Jennifer and Matthew Holm. They met with students in large and small groups, and all students had the chance to learn from this dynamic sister/brother team. The school has gone BABY-MOUSE and SQUISH crazy! Many thanks to the PTA for helping to sponsor their visit this week!
Thanks to everyone who participated in the ES Book Fair. We had five vendors and a big selection of many thousands of books. Portions of the profits went for new books in our ES HUB! Look for the next book fair during the March 9 conferences.
