As with others from around the World, we have been deeply affected by the Sandy Hook School massacre where there was a senseless loss of lives of so many beautiful children and adults. We wanted to share with you the following message from author, Julia Dweck:
“Our hearts go out to all those whose lives were touched by the tragedy in Newtown, CT. I proposed a one day fundraiser on Amazon to my publisher, Kite Readers, in which I would donate my share of the proceeds to the Sandy Hook School Fund. Kite Readers thought this was a great idea and agreed to match my donation and run the event this Saturday, 12/22/12 and advertize it on their Facebook page. Many of the talented illustrators I work with have generously offered their share of Saturday’s proceeds, as well.
Please, join us in supporting this worthwhile event that will bring comfort to those in need. Visit this link to my Amazon author page to view my book collection: Julia Dweck on Amazon
Any of my books purchased on Saturday, 12/22/12 will raise funds for this effort. Thank you for your kind support. Please, spread the word. Please consider “liking” and following in order to follow any updates. “
Here are some of the Julia Dweck books that we have read and reviewed. Click on the covers to see what we have to say!
