It was a fun filled weekend with many authors of all ages (not as young as eight though). Natalija launched her book and her message eliciting overwhelming curiosity from a diverse audience. She will be attending her first speaking engagement for the Children's Literacy Group next weekend.
The story of King Burue has rocked the boat in a positive way for several reasons. First, it's a good book. Second, it's written by an eight-year-old. Third, the message encompasses diversity, acceptance, standing up for your beliefs and liking whomever you like based on character and your heart. Overall it's saying... "it's cool to be kind and it's not cool to be judgmental." An astounding feat from a child's eyes.
