HÀ NỘI — Kim Đồng Publishing House showcased a collection of picture books without text for preschool and primary students yesterday.
The books featured included: Where is the Cake? and The Birthday Cake Mystery by Thé Tjong Khing; The Adventures of Polo by Regis Faller; and Sidewalk Flowers by JonArno Lawson and Sydney Smith.
The featured books by Khing, a children’s book illustrator based in the Netherlands, won a Golden Brush award and a Golden Owl Prize.
“Picture books bring children more stories than books with words," Nguyễn Thị Kim Dung, a Publishing House editor, said.
“When we introduce these books at Liễu Giai Primary and Pre-school, we receive good response from the students and teachers. The students find different ways to tell their own stories based on the paintings.” — VNS
