Happy Book Birthday: Tina Cho’s RICE FROM HEAVEN
Don’t you love birthdays? I do!
Especially when they are book birthdays and I don’t get any older!
And especially when they are book birthday for one of my dearest kidlit friends!
HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO YOU! HAPPY BIRTHDAY DAY TO RICE FROM HEAVEN!
And not only is this a story by a dear critique buddy, the other amazing thing is that this book is based on true events!
I am extremely grateful to Tina for writing this story and informing children and adults of what is happening on the other side of the world. We read a lot about North Korea in the news – but this is something that is going on behind the scenes. It shows such love and compassion on the part of the South Koreans who want the people in North Korea to have food. Learn more about RICE FROM HEAVEN tomorrow on Perfect Picture Book Friday.
And how excited I am to see that RICE FROM HEAVEN is the #1 New Release on Amazon in Children’s Asia Books!
I know you won’t want to miss our Perfect Picture Book Friday post when I review RICE FROM HEAVEN…and then, to top off this special week, Tina Cho will be stopping by to chat with us and share one of her favorite treats.
Thank you for spending your precious time here. Pleases remember that the finest gift you can give the authors of your favorite books is to buy their books, review their books, tell your friends about their books, and ask your local library to purchase copies for their collection.
I hope you have a wonderful week and I hope to see you back here on Friday!
