Celebrate International Literacy Day!

Chinese Mythology Rocks!
ISBN (Library Bound):  978-0-7660-3898-1
ISBN (Paperback):  978-1-59845-330-0

     The United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) recognizes International Literacy Day today, September the 8th, and this year the focus is on literacy and peace.  The purpose of the day is to raise people’s awareness of literacy issues in the world. One great way to recognize literacy throughout different cultures is by reading Enslow’s new titles in our Mythology Rocks series. Since myths are stories of a people, they appear all over the world-telling narratives of their unique cultures. They were first told orally and then eventually written down so different cultures could read about their history-thus promoting literacy worldwide!
     African Mythology Rocks!, Celtic Mythology Rocks!, Chinese Mythology Rocks!, Gods and Goddesses in Greek Mythology Rock!, Heroes in Greek Mythology Rock!, and Maya and Aztec Mythology Rocks! are all new titles in this series for the fall.  Each library bound title is $31.93, at an interest level of grades six and up.  Check out these titles and see how literacy advanced internationally!
