As initially announced over the weekend, this National Children’s Day will be marked by a key milestone, launching of Vanuatu’s first ever non-fiction children’s storybook about inspiring ni-Vanuatu.
The book is published by the Vanuatu Children’s Literature Community Initiative to celebrate the 40th independence anniversary. The beautifully illustrated 180-page hardback book presents 40 diverse stories for children, parents and teachers to read together. Called ‘Taf Tumas! Different journeys, one people’, it will be launched as part of the official independence anniversary programme on Friday 24 July. This is just the first story in this series. Others will be featured over the next editions, as well as on radio and social media.
