Today was created by the International Board on Books in honor of Hans Christian Anderson’s birthday. Books launch us into other worlds, other eras and places we might not be able to go otherwise. And for children, it’s important to open their minds to other possibilities, real or imagined. And I shamelessly offer my book, “Why The Evergreen’s Stay Green” as an example of something children, and families can enjoy. It’s on Amazon for only 99 cents. Yes it’s a Christmas story but since we don’t really know when the first Christmas was I guess it makes it good all year long. Anyway, if you know a child, get them a book, you won’t regret it.
How to celebrate – Get a book for a child. Donate a book to the library. Read “Why The Evergreen’s Stay Green”.
