The Magic Bookmark – A student dislikes school and reading so much he gets a rush just by hearing those two words. But one day he has to produce something handmade for a school assignment. He asks his mother for her help and she advises him to make a bookmark.The student has so much fun making the bookmark, that at the same time he develops an interest in books. His reading is slow and timid but he uses the bookmark he has made. The bookmark (magically) moves on to the next pages and before he knows it on to the next book and the next book and the next book. Another beautiful story from Saita Publications, translated for the original Greek version.

attendance was not compulsory, he would not set
foot in there.
