Maria Rousakis--Greek children's author

I was so excited to receive an e-mail from Maria Rousakis today. She is the well known and honored Greek children's author of my daughter's favorite book Η Μέλπω η Μοναδική. Please take a look at her website to learn more about her. Her books are available to purchase on line here. Any of these books would make a wonderful addition to your child's Greek library as they are beautifully illustrated and always have a meaningful message in the story.

For more about the author, take a look at her interview here, at the Mikros Anagnostis website.

Happy Reading!!!

Questions and answers

So, for some reason I am not able to respond to comments in the comments section lately, so I will try to answer some questions sent my way here.

Question #1
Is it possible to post a copy of the church from the Kryfo Scholio project.
This coloring page was found on the
Potamitis Publishing website a few years ago. I do not have the rights to this coloring page to post it, but perhaps you can contact Potamitis Publishing and they could send it to you.

Question #2
Where did you find the costumes for the Passport Please post.
These were found in the book Greek Boy and Girl paper dolls from Dover Publications. It has costumes from Ancient Greece in it too! It really is a cute book.
Take a look at the book here.
