I'm happy and honored that Scribbly Katia is featured on author Anastasia Suen's Children's Book Biz News' blog, as well as her other blog Picture Book of the Day, in which she uses "Picture Books to Teach the Six Traits of writing." Thank you, Anastasia.

Sandhya Nankani whom we visited for an interview at Literary Safari, also wrote a wonderful review of Amadi's Snowman.

And last, but far from least, we travel to the Dominican Republic for our first video clip, starring Frantzito, who tells us why he likes Amadi's Snowman.


That one is tongue in cheek, but we had to have one from Groucho Marx :)

"I find TV very educating. Every time someone turns on the set, I go in the other room and read a book." Groucho Marx


Tomorrow, we have another great day with a review and our book trailer debut at Mitali Perkin's blog, The Fire Escape. We then go to Michigan, to visit the Poupard Elementary School, in Harper Woods. See you then...

Lovely video, Bravo Frantzito!

Katia said...

Isn't he great? Thanks, Valentina. I was beginning to wonder why no one leaves comments, anymore. The number of hits has skyrocketed, but everyone is silent. Too busy, most likely. :))

It's so wonderful to see Amadi in all of these places! Loved the video!

Katia said...

Thanks, Suzanne. It IS very gratifying to see the book traveling all over, isn't it? And to see that it touches children in the same way, everywhere it goes. It reinforces a very simple truth : we are all the same. Diverse. But deep down where it matters, we're all the same.

Definetly great, maybe less posts because the children already full fill with their genuine joy and thoughts this charming space. What to add more if not "bravo" or "great"! It's their Tour and we readers we just enjoy their words and surprise! THank's
