About her motivation to participate in Kolibrí, Catarina tells us: “I know that the Seminar on bilingualism will be a very enriching experience, because it offers the opportunity of sharing experiences with colleagues and multilingual families. I am also very curious to know what they do in Finland. And I hope to be able to contribute with ideas about the parents role in their children’s reading habits.”
