Sing to the Moon: Blog Tour Announcement

by - 10:12

I am so happy to announce the start of Lantana Publishing's blog tour for their soon to be released picture book, Sing to the Moon by Nansubuga Nagadaya Isdahl and Sandra van Doorn. Even more happy to announce that the first stop is right here on my blog. This stop on my blog also comes with something that is also a first for my blog - guest posts. 

If you have been following my blog for a while now, it is clear that I am a huge advocate for children's literature - particularly African children's literature. It is also no secret that I love, love, love Lantana Publishing, an independent publishing company based in the UK - and what they are doing for children's literature more broadly, and African's literature specifically. 

I first fell in love with both Isdahl and van Doorn with their first book - also published by Lantana Publishing - Sleep Well, Siba and Saba. Their new picture book - out October 11 - also does not disappoint. Sing to the Moon follows a little Ugandan boy at his grandfather's house on a rainy day, and shows us that a gloomy day, close to home, with your grandfather can be as magical as riding a supernova straight to Mars. I loved this book, the relationship between the grandfather and the grandson, and of course the illustrations. As always, Lantana Publishing have shared with us a beautiful created by the talented writer, Nansubuga Nagadya Isdahl and talented illustrator, Sandra van Doorn

Over the course of this week, Sing to the Moon and its writer, Nansubuga Nagadya Isdahl and illustrator, Sandra van Doorn will be stopping by five blogs to share the joy around their new picture book. So join me today as Nansubuga Nagadya Isdahl and Sandra van Doorn share the stories within the story Sing to the Moon.
