This yearly celebration coincides with Hans Christian Andersen’s birthday. Each year a different country is given hosting honors which allows them to choose the theme and have a guest author post his or her thoughts. This year United Arab Emeirtus (UAE) is waving the flag with a Many Cultures One Story theme. You may read Author Marwa Al Aqroubi’s message by clicking on the poster above.
My contribution is a giveaway of recent book I read that fits the theme beautifully: WAITING FOR UNICORNS by Beth Hautala. Here you will find the an American girl who moves to an Inuit Eskimo town with her dad. It’s described as A rich and poignant story about opening up—to new people, to second chances, to moving forward with life.
To enter the drawing just leave the name of a book you’d recommend that fits the theme this year. I will draw the winner at 10 p.m eastern time on Easter Sunday. Good luck and happy reading.
I just read Korean Children’s Favorite Stories, which is a middle-grade picture book. I was surprised how universal the stories were. Please let someone else win your giveaway. I am just buried in books. Thanks for the post.
