New Books by Norah Colvin at Library For All

This week I received a surprise in the post that I just had to share with you. I received printed copies of 8 beginner readers, all written by me, that have recently been added to the Library For All collection. One of them has even been translated into Tetum, an Austronesian language spoken on the island of Timor that is an official language of East Timor.

While I knew the books were in production, I didn’t realise they were published, so receiving the package was a wonderful surprise. I am absolutely delighted to be able to support the work of Library For All by donating these stories to them. In addition to these eight, two other titles were published in 2019, and there are an additional four titles recently published for which I have not yet received printed copies.

While the entire collection of digital books is available to download free from Library For All through a free Android app, the purchase of printed books from the collection helps to support the work of Library For All.

I first introduced you to  the wonderful work of  Library For All in the post Library For All — A Force for Equality through Literacy. You are welcome to find out more by heading back to the post or exploring their website.

Briefly, Library For All is an Australian not for profit organisation with a mission to “make knowledge accessible to all, equally” through a digital library of books that is available free to anyone anywhere in the world. The focus is on providing high quality, engaging, age appropriate and culturally relevant books to children in developing countries and remote areas.

Printed copies are also available and catalogues of titles can be browsed in the shop.

My titles can be found on my Amazon Author page.

As you will see from the titles, most are humorous stories written to highlight particular sounds.

    Thank you so much, Jacqui. While I knew Library For All was publishing all the stories, I didn’t expect to see them completed all at once. It was quite exciting.

    Thank you so much, Debby. I’m very happy to be able to contribute to the wonderful work of Library For All in this small way.

    Thank you for your support, Robbie, though there is no need for you to purchase the books, not to support me anyway. You don’t have any readers they are suitable for. If you wanted to look at them, you could download the free app and look at them there. While it would be lovely of you to support Library For All with your purchases, Debby Gies wrote about a similar program happening closer to you – in South Africa – called Book Dash. This is a link if you missed her post

Please share your thoughts. I love it when you do.
