Reading in Ancient Greece

Look where Ema is reading!

Did you figure it out? Yes, Ema is reading Anne of Green Gables in Ancient Greece! She has certainly traveled a long way to do some reading!


We have had photos from readers in  Washington, Massachusetts,  and Canada! These places are in North America.  We have also had reading photos from our friends in Sovenga,  South Africa.  Ema’s photo is our first from Europe. Now we have had photos from three different continents.  Here is a map of the world.

Do you think it’s warm in Greece right now? What kind of buildings and sites do you think Ema is seeing in Greece? Leave us a comment and let us know! Our goal this summer is to promote student reading and see if we can find readers from every continent in the world. Spread the word on how important and fun reading can be! Send us your photo to:

  1. Dear Mrs Hembree,

    Happy Holiday to you and your wonderful Bulldog readers.
    What a wonderful lot of photos your wonderful Bulldog readers have sent to you for you to blog.

    It been ages since I last visited your blog, am so sorry for that. It is so great to re visit your blog once again.

    Do hope you are having a wonderful holiday as for us down under it’s been really cold so cold that I have had an awful head cold for three weeks now. Sadly it just doesn’t want to leave me.

    Well take care and happy reading to you and your Bulldog readers.

    AA 🙂

    • Dear AA,
      How absolutely wonderful to hear from you! I’ve been thinking about you and BB a lot this summer! More than that, I just made display in the library of Australian artifacts – all from my friends in Australia. As I set each piece up, I thought about the wonderful connection we have had through the years. I forgot to take a photo, but when I do, I will share it with you.
      I’m sorry to hear about the weather. Winter is just cold, nasty business. It’s going to be quite warm today, so I am going to try to do my chores before it gets too hot. I’ve also been reading quite a bit, and just came back from a vacation visiting my family on the East Coast.
      I hope you feel better soon. I’m hoping BB will send me a photo of her reading in Australia for our annual reading program! We are trying to urge kids to read all around the world! It’s my theme for the library for the 2014-15 school year. Read Around the World. What do you think?
      Thanks again for visiting and BIG hugs to BB from me!
      Your friend,
      Mrs. Hembree

  2. @ Mrs Hembree,

    So wonderful to read your reply back to me.

    Sounds like you having a wonderful summer holiday which is awesome!

    I really love how you are setting up a display are in your library I can’t wait to see the photos when you are finished.

    Also I really love the idea of getting photos of children reading all around the globe. Will try to get a photo of BB reading this weekend.

    I agree with you that it is a good idea to get you housework done in the early part of the day before the warm/hot weather hits.

    Well take care and keep cool.

    From your pal down under,
    AA “)
