Chinese/English Titles!!

As those who love our books know, we take pride in our wide variety of Spanish/English bilingual titles. All About Book is testing the waters and have brought in three new Chinese/English bilingual titles. They are now up on our website!

All three Chinese/English titles by Belle Yang. All three are board-books costing $2.75 for children 24-36 months. Squirrel Round and Round explores seasons, and we have 289 on hand. Summertime Rainbow teaches colors, and we have 1,041 on hand. With 529 in stock, Hurry Home, Hedgehog! talks about sounds. In traditional Chinese characters, these three books also have tonal mark explanations and pinyin translations in the back!

Movember

As November comes around, there may be some men in your lives which take up the Movember endeavor to grow a stylish stash while raising awareness for men’s health. One such gent – our bold boss Dan Abate – has sacrificed his face for this noble cause! We here in the All About Books’ office thought we’d share his page, so if you’re so inclined, please donate!

1. What inspired you to participate in Movember?

As a family man of middle age, it is important that we, as a society, strive to conquer male-specific disease that ends lives and fractures families. From a marital standpoint, I just really wanted to annoy my wife, especially during the picture-laden holiday season. 

2. Does your mustache have an end goal?

Einstein, of course, but I’d settle for a Burt Reynolds. 

3. Who is your mustachioed role model?

Ron Swanson, a.k.a. Nick Offerman, of Parks and Recreation fame. I am also a big fan of the works and mustache of Mark Twain.

4. What is your role at All About Books?

I am the Operations Manager. Among other things, I make sure the books that are sold get to where they need to go.

5. Favorite children’s book?

Horton Hears a Who – by the Doctor.
