New Laila Hills Books

We got an exciting delivery today of Laila Hills' new books from Korea Hermannhesse publishing. They are such bright and cheerful illustrations following the adventures of Amy the cow, and provide a great learning experience for the little people in our lives with their 'sing sing phonics' approach to teaching language. Great stuff Laila!

Carol Liddiment wins another award!!

Fantastic news for children's illustrator Carol Liddiment whose wonderful art for the book 'How Many Donkeys? An Arabic Counting Tale' has won the 2010 Middle East Book Award for best picture book! Congratulations to her and the authors Margaret Read McDonald and Nadia Jameel Taibah.

Here's a little more info of the award:
Established in 1999, the Middle East Book Award recognizes quality books for children and young adults that contribute meaningfully to an understanding of the Middle East and its component societies and cultures. Books are judged on the authenticity of their portrayal of a Middle Eastern subject, as well as on their characterization, plot, and appeal for the intended audience.
