Every Little Kindness, Booklist Reviews

Zelo rada delim lepe novice in tukaj je še ena 😊🧡. Knjiga Every Little Kindness (Chronicle Books, pri nas pa Miš založba) je prejela čudovito recenzijo s strani Booklist Reviews (@ALA_Booklist). Uradno izide v oktobru, delim pa jo lahko že sedaj. Priložena je v angleščini. Na tem mestu še enkrat hvala Booklist Reviews, založbi Chronicle Books in Dari-i Harper, Miš založbi in Anžetu Miš ter moji agentki Allison Hellegers, Stimola Literary Studio Clients.
I'm always happy when I can share beautiful news 🌞🧡. Another review of my worldess picture book Every Little Kindness, Chronicle Books, originally published by Miš založba, will be out in October. It's written by Booklist Reviews (@ALA_Booklist). And again, I want to say a big thank you to Booklist Reviews, Chronicle Books and Daria Harper, Miš založba and Anže Miš and to my agent Allison Hellegers, Stimola Literary Studio Clients.
This is the review: "A girl awakens early and sets off walking through her neighborhood, posting flyers about her missing dog. Along the way, she gives a street musician an apple; this kindness encourages another walker to pick up litter, which in turn inspires a young child to replace a balloon for a sobbing toddler. The thoughtful deeds continue, finally circling back to the original girl, who is reunited with her lost pup. Bartolj's wordless picture book, originally published in Slovenia, beautifully illustrates the concept of paying it forward. Her watercolor-and-ink illustrations employ a palette of grey tones and yellows with red used to bring attention to the good deeds in the story. The use of comic panels allows the narrative to expand, depicting several additional altruistic acts before the story's conclusion. Readers will enjoy finding the dog posters throughout and predicting the kindly acts in each vignette. With endpapers depicting a bird's eye view of the neighborhood, and small details signaling a European-style city setting, this is a tale that begs for repeated viewings. — Kay Weisman."

Every Little Kindness, a worldess picture book

Jaaaaa! Knjigo Every Little Kindness, ki bo izšla okrobra pri založbi Chronicle books končno držim v rokah! Skačem do neba ❤! Res sem zadovoljna s formatom knjige, tiskom in njenim celotnim izgledom. To je bila res lepa in nepozabna izkušnja.

Hurray! I am finally holding the book Every Little Kindness, which will be published in October at the Chronicle books publishing house, in my hands! I'm jumping to the sky ❤! It's almost surreal. I love the format of the book, the print and its overall look. Feeling so grateful for the experience.

Rastoča knjiga in občinsko priznanje

Te dni se kar veliko dogaja. Vesela sem uvrstitve v Rastočo knjigo, ki se je odvijala v soboto, 19. junija ter za včerajšnje prejeto občinsko priznanje za odmevne ilustratorske dosežke. Ob tem gre zahvala gospodu Jožetu Zupan in gospe Patriciji Pavlič, zaradi katerih se je zgodila uvrstitev v Rastočo knjigo Temeniške in Mirnske doline.

In pa seveda zahvala županu gospodu Alojziju Kastelic, Občini Trebnje ter JSKD Trebnje za podeljeno občinsko priznanje.

Obe prireditvi je spremljal kulturni program, s katerim so glasbeniki slovesnost še bolj požlahtnili.

I'm so happy to announce that my new booklet is out, published by Miš Publishing. This one has a little bit of text that's inviting us to pause in today's busy lives.

Iskrica./A sparkle.

Vedno pogosteje me obišče pradavno hrepenenje, ki noče ostati skrito. Objame me, to drobno sonce. In ga objamem nazaj. In stopiva se v nekaj tiho-mehkega. In tam je vse dobro.

More and more often it visits me, that ancient longing that doesn't want to remain hidden. It hugs me gently, that tiny sun. And I hug it back. And we melt into something quiet and soft. And everything is all right there.

Še več lepih novic./Some more beautiful news to share.

Brezbesedni knjigi Kje si? (Miš založba) in Darilo, avtorice Andreja Gregorič (Založba Zala), ki sta del IBBY zbirke brezbesednih knjig 2019, bosta v sklopu celotne zbirke razstavljeni v Avstraliji! Juhu!

Zbirka brezbesednih knjig, ki se pripravlja na dve leti, potuje v obliki razstave tako po Italiji kot po drugih deželah sveta. Prav tako je razstavljena na bolonjskem knjižnem sejmu ter na IBBY kongresu v Novi Zelandiji in Grčiji. V sklopu zbirke je tudi Častna lista, na kateri je knjiga Kje si?.

So happy that two books that are part of the IBBY Silent Books Collection 2019 (my Kje si?, Miš založba and Darilo, Andreja Gregorič, Založba Zala) are on display in Australia! There are, to date, four collections of Silent Books: the Silent Books Collection 2013 (110 books), the Silent Books Collection 2015 (51 books), the Silent Books Collection 2017 (79 books) and the Silent Books Collection 2019 (67 books). Within each collection there is a selection of Honour Books (among them also the book Kje si?). Each of the collections has toured as an exhibition at various venues in Italy and all over the world, as well as being displayed at the Bologna Book Fair, Korea, Australia and in New Zealand.
