Back To School Night tonight at Alamo Elementary in Vacaville will be slightly out of the ordinary, in a literary way with a scientific aspect.
When groups of parents file past informational tables outside the multipurpose room on the South Orchard Avenue campus, they will not only meet librarian Lucy Thomas and learn how the library works but also they will meet volunteer library assistant Dalene Sovine and learn about her new children’s book, “The Path of the Butterfly,” which was illustrated by the school’s custodian, Karl Van Loo.
If they wish, the parents can also buy the 24-page book, a work based on a true account out of now-retired Alamo kindergarten teacher Val Gardner’s class. It costs $15, with $3 of every sale donated to the library.
