My daughters became completely fascinated with Chinese culture during the Olympics in Beijing. Savvy Housewife has a beautiful book, Motherbridge of Love, to give away from Barefoot Books, which was founded in 1993 by two mothers .
From the Barefoot Books website: Our products are intended to act as springboards for children’s hearts and minds, helping them to express themselves with confidence and integrity, and to explore the world in new ways. These, it seems to us, are essential skills in today’s fragile and fast-changing world. We need creative people in business, in the arts, in medicine and science, and in government. But creativity doesn’t just happen: the seeds may be in all of us, but the way we raise our children, and the emphasis we place on their imaginative development, is what helps those seeds to grow.
This beautiful poem celebrates the bond between parent and child. Through the exchanges between a little Chinese girl and her mother, Motherbridge of Love offers a poignant and inspiring message to parents and children all over the world.
I love that the text royalties from the sale of this book are donated to Mother Bridge of Love, a charity that reaches out to Chinese children all over the world in order to develop a connection between China and the West, and between adoptive culture and birth culture.
Savvy Housewife is proud to sponsor a giveaway to this beautifully illustrated book which won the #3 spot in Time Magazine’s Top Ten Children’s Books of 2007. To enter, simply leave a comment on this post between now and midnight Monday, September 1. A winner’s name will be chosen randomly from all comments. Thanks and good luck!
