Win the Children’s Book Adventures that Lead to Home


Win the book Adventures that Lead to Home by Bonita Jewel Hele (author) and Lisa Butler (illustrator), courtesy of Hartlyn Kids. The giveaway also includes a free “passport.”

About the passport: Each of their books includes a free passport stamp. After reading the book, you have effectively visited that country. Hartlyn Kids offers a passport to document the collection of passport stamps and the number of countries visited by reading a book from the series. This is a fun and easy way for children to get excited about world travel!

About the book: Meet Rohit, a rural Indian boy who experiences adventure and excitement during his first visit to an Indian city. Along the way he learns that the differences between his rural life and city life are numerous and that despite the excitement of the city—there is no place like home!

    India- a myriad of languages, cultures, skin colors, facial features, cuisines ….. A MYSTIC land.

    i love the beautiful saris and the food – especially dosas and idli.

    Something I know about India: the way a sari is wrapped can depend on a person’s cast, region, or the job they need to do, & both women & men can wrap it like a skirt or like pants.

    One thing I know about India: Just because people are poor in wealth doesn’t mean they are poor in spirit. Mother Teresa met a man on the street, whose whole days earnings were so meager he could buy very little to eat, yet when he saw her he jumped at the chance to donate his money. It meant so much to him to give to Mother Teresa. India is a land rich in spiritual heritage and a place of pilgrimage for people of various traditions.

    India has more than 25 languages and hundreds of dialects. I once did a project on Bi/multilingualism and identity in India and realized very quickly that my topic was way too broad!
