Glow-in-the-dark sticker giveaway and event kit!

Your group--classroom, book club, reading group can order these glow-in-the-dark stickers FREE! 
Remember when I was offering advanced reading copies to book clubs? I was really sad that I couldn't send one to every group that contacted me, but now I DO have something for everyone! Your book club, your classroom-- anyone who is reading and sharing Starry River of the Sky--  can order these specially made glow-in-the-dark stickers FREE! Yes, if you're a teacher reading the book to you class, you can order a sticker for each student. If your mother-daughter bookclub is reading Starry River of the Sky, each girl can have a sticker! For free. Go ahead and  order your stickers HERE (while supplies last}.

These stickers are part of  this event kit that goes with the book.  Have your own Starry River of the Sky Book Party! With this event kit  readers can listen to Chinese legends and then, marked with the symbol of power, save the earth!

Many of the stories tell of why the sun and moon hang in the sky and what can happen when their balance is disturbed.  This interactive read-aloud and follow-up game features one of those ancient stories and rewards readers with a glow-in-the-dark sticker that can represent for them the sun, the moon, and how their places in the sky effect our traditional stories and the story of The Starry River of the Sky.

The Interactive Read-Aloud allows you to read aloud from the first ancient story told in the book while using the whole audience for sound effects.  The script will also prompt you to use members of the audience and some simple props to tell the story of a hero who shoots multiple suns from the sky.

The Game allows all the attendees to participate post-reading in a simple tossing of a rice-filled arrow onto a sun target.  They can be rewarded with glow-in-the-dark stickers that you can order free of charge. You can order the glow-in-the-dark stickers from www.CuriousCityDPW.com (while supplies last!)
