“Will you come and read your book to the children in our library?”
“Of course, I would love to!” I replied.
But this invitation was a little bit different.
The children had probably never seen a double-decker bus before and certainly not in their village.
“Wow!” this sounded fun to me.
Although I know a little Spanish, it is not very good and I wondered if the children would even understand about this Playbus?
With a simple visual PowerPoint presentation, I could show the real bus and what the ‘Playbus’ did.
Then reading the book in English the interpreters translated into Spanish and added a voice to Jay-Jay.
The children seemed to enjoy it as did the adults.
“We didn’t know Jay-Jay was a real bus.” They said.
What is the link to Spain?
Now with both books in the libraries at Moraira and Teulada, the bus, might not have got to Spain but in my imagination, Jay-Jay did.
It really had been an exciting journey for me too.
“I wonder what Jay-Jay’s next adventure will be?”
“Maybe a Fiesta? That would be fun!”
