We’re thrilled to announce that Didn’t We Have Fun! was chosen for an Honor Award from Skipping Stones magazine, as one of 12 books selected for the Multicultural and International Books category.
In the year of our 25th Anniversary, we recognize 25 outstanding books and teaching resources with the Skipping Stones Honor Awards. The honored books promote an understanding of cultures, cultivate cooperation and encourage a deeper understanding of the world’s diversity. They also encourage ecological richness, respect for multiple viewpoints and close relationships within human societies.
