“How many things can you do with a broom? Well, you can sweep the floor, for instance, or you can use the broom to prop a door open. Wait, you can also use it as a pendulum, a baton, a weapon, a musical instrument… and you could even use it to fly over the moon. If you open your mind and your eyes, you’ll discover that every object in your life has the potential to do a hundred different things you never suspected before. Pedro de Alcantara will provide the objects, you provide the mind and eyes!"

Mr. de Alcantara is the author of two novels for young readers, Befiddled and Backtracked (available at Red Wheelbarrow ) as well as several works of nonfiction for adults. To learn more about him and his books for young people, visit www.pedrodealcantara.com

Gifted in France is a non-profit association that is self-funded. We are indebted to the families who’ve extended their support through their membership.

Kind regards,
Helen Sahin Connelly
