The Radisson Makes a Book Donation

A short ceremony marked the publication of Kaylee, Reina di Carnaval, a children’s book written in the Papiamento language. The book was penned by author and educator Denise de Jongh-Rekwest, seen here in the picture flanked by the Radisson Aruba Resort Casino & Spa staffers with General Manager Rob Smith.

The resort supported the book publication by pledging 200 copies to local schools. Written about children’s etiquette, norms and values, the book teaches children about proper behavior at the movies, in a restaurant, among their peers and among adults, including on parade during the Carnaval season. Previous publications by the same author tackled the proper behavior of children on vacation, in an airplane and even at summer camp. The Radisson’s commitment to education made the donation to schools possible, reaching more children in the elementary education system.
