A. That Girl on TV wins 3 Gold Medals
Our Spanish bilingual book That Girl on TV Could Be Me! The Journey of a Latina News Anchor won first place in three categories in the 2021 International Latino Book Awards:

- best non-fiction children's picture book
- best author video &
- best author media kit

Congratulations to author Leticia Ordaz and illustrator Juan Calle.

De Colores praised this evocative and inspiring autobiography: "it's the images of Leticia's family's journey and hard work to encourage their children and give them a good life that especially stand out." Check it out!

B. The Octonauts = a top TV pick
Reviewers agree: The Octonauts are must see TV. With the headline "I'm a child psychologist and these are the seven TV shows your kids should be watching to make them a genius," UK's The Sun ranks this child-friendly show after Sesame Street: "for its teachings on marine life, teamwork and the environment."

Meanwhile, What to Watch calls The Octonauts one of the Best Netflix shows for toddlers to watch right now:

"The tireless team of resourceful rescuers always work together to carry out exciting and daring missions. It's also a great way for littles one to learn about sea creatures and the underwater world."

Go the source of all the fun: read our four original Octonauts storybooks that inspired the hit animated TV series worldwide.

C. Book Author Visits for 2022!
Spice up your kids' school days with Immedium authors!

For example, this month, author Oliver Chin will present in-person at an after-school program at the Stratford School in Sunnyvale, CA. Then he shares storybooks in a virtual assembly for kindergarten to third grade at Las Lomitas elementary school in nearby Atherton.

Our creators tailor programs for a range of ages, interests, and themes. We encourage PTAs to book our authors for visits in 2022. Ask your child's teacher, librarian, principal to contact us!

We're happy to reserve a date for your classroom in our calendar. We look forward to arranging educational and entertaining talks your students.


The Adventures of WonderBaby: from A to Z
by Oliver Chin, illustrated by Joe Chiodo

"I am a huge fan of FUN ABC books! It's such a reward to watch your child read along with you and begin to point out and recognize the letters! The Adventures of Wonderbaby from A-Z is fantastic! Not your typical A is for Apple and B is for Boy kind of story! Instead WonderBaby 'Drools like a Dog' and 'Wiggles like a Worm', much more engaging and entertaining for the kids."

Boy Dumplings: A Tasty Chinese Tale
by Ying Chang Compestine, illustrated by James Yamasaki

"In the streets of Old Beijing, a desperate, hungry ghost finds a nice plump boy, perfect for eating.... Yamasaki's cartoon illustrations have a palette full of dark blues and bright yellows, contrasting not only day and night but also the creepy ghost and the ingenious boy.
VERDICT A fun, slightly spooky twist on the classic tale of a small child outwitting a villain"
