Giveaway | "Today I Am" by Mies Van Hout


I am starting off this week with a book giveaway by Fish Book Co.!

Today I Am  is the Southeast Asian English version of the award-winning Dutch children’s book “Vrolijk” by Mies Van Hout. First published in June 2011 in the Netherlands, “Vrolijk” has since garnered numerous accolades, including being nominated for the prestigious Deutscher Jugendliteraturpreis (German Children’s Literature Award) 2013.

The book introduces 20 different emotions, and is unique in that it features vibrantly coloured fishes on a black background. Each double page spread is devoted to one fish showing a particular emotion, along with its name in lettering that expresses the same feeling.

Given that the book covers emotions that all of us, including children, feel, the book is a resource that parents can use to help kids learn about their emotions, increase their awareness about them, and learn the vocabulary to express how they feel. The versatility of the book makes it suitable for children anywhere from aged 2 to 10. You can purchase the book from its website, or at major bookstores.

Fish Book Co, who hosted Singapore's largest drawing contest at the Rise & Shine Expo last weekend, is giving away 5 copies of this book to this blog's readers!

If you would like a copy, or want to win one for a friend, put yourself down for the draw! This will run till next Monday 7 Oct 11pm :) International entries are welcomed. All the best!

To enter this draw:
1. Leave a comment with your email address.
2. Gain an extra entry if you share this post on your Facebook wall and tag A Dollop of Me's Facebook Page.
