Highlights from World Book Day 2023 πŸ“š

At Kunda Kids, we aim to showcase various elements of African culture in creative, fun, and simple formats for children. In this blog post, I want to share our experience of World Book Day 2023, highlighting the heartwarming messages we received from our community, the joy of seeing children dressed up as Kunda Kids book characters, and our author book reading at Deen City Farm in London.

Heart-warming messages from the community

One of the things that made World Book Day 2023 extra special for us was receiving heart-warming messages from people in our community. It was amazing to hear from parents, teachers, and children who shared how our books inspired them to learn more about African culture and embrace their heritage. As a small, independent publisher, these messages mean the world. They remind us why we started Kunda Kids in the first place - to create books that reflect the world around us and that help children see themselves in the stories they read.

Another highlight of World Book Day 2023 for Kunda Kids was seeing how other children dressed up as our book characters. It was incredible to see children embrace our characters, bringing them to life in their own unique ways. Representation matters, and seeing children of all backgrounds engage with our stories in such a personal and creative way was a true testament to that. We loved seeing the photos of children dressed up as Adanah, Kofi, and the other characters from our books. It was heart-warming to see how much they loved our stories.

The cherry on top of our World Book Day 2023 experience was our author book reading at Deen City Farm in London. We were thrilled to share our stories with enthusiastic young readers. Seeing their faces light up as we read aloud from our books was an unforgettable experience. It was amazing to see how much our stories resonated with them and to hear their questions and feedback. As authors, it was incredibly rewarding to connect with young readers in such a direct way.
