Crayola will host a 45 minute Facebook Live event on September 1st, 2021, that will feature author Carola Schmidt talking about her book Bald is Beautiful: A letter for a fabulous girl and cancer awareness, followed by a reading of the book by Joey and Tonya Madia, from the fabulous Saturday Morning Story Time. The second half of the event will be a draw-along with illustrator Dian Ovieta: kids watching from classrooms all over the world will be taught to draw a scene from the book, while Dian talks about the process.
Crayola and Carola are sponsoring 2 giveaways: Reviewers that signup for the tour can subscribe for a Rafflecopter giveaway for a chance to win a paperback copy of the book, plus a Crayola Create-to-Learn kit; a second giveaway for the same prizes will be offered to the teachers participating in the Facebook Live Event.
Crayola and Carola will also donate 5 books to children’s cancer institutions chosen by reviewers and teachers; the 5 most chosen will receive the books, plus 5 Crayola Colors of the World crayon classpacks.
From Crayola: “The institutions would have individual boxes they can take room to room or give to an individual child. Our diversity and inclusion messages of Colors of the World are perfect for helping kids feel comfortable with their bald, beautiful heads.”
Join the book tour, and you’ll receive a free ebook to review! We ask reviewers to please post the Facebook Live Event invite on their various platforms with their reviews.
