SUPPORT THIS INDEPENDENT JOURNALISM
The article you’re about to read is from our reporters doing their important work — investigating, researching, and writing their stories. We want to provide informative and inspirational stories that connect you to the people, issues and opportunities within our community. Journalism requires lots of resources. Today, our business model has been interrupted by the pandemic; the vast majority of our advertisers’ businesses have been impacted. That’s why The Capistrano Dispatch is now turning to you for financial support. Learn more about our new Insider’s program here. Thank you.
The Capistrano Dispatch
On March 6, Nicole DoNascimento, author of the children’s book, The Lucky Nickel, visited classes from Kindergarten readiness through second grade at Mission Basilica School in San Juan Capistrano. During her visit, which was part of a two-day book tour, DoNascimento reviewed reading skills with the students and asked reading comprehension questions, in addition to discussing the book’s theme, which conveys the importance of giving and how it can make a difference in the lives of others. At the end of the story, students were able to share with the class how they have helped others in need.
