In conjunction with this SPECIALS, I am also happy to share to everybody that Barefoot Books has finally released the book Little Leap Forward: A Boy in Beijing written by Guo Yue. With the 2008 Olympics coming up pretty soon, this book will definitely serve as a great opener for your children.

This story is the launch title forBarefoot Books’ new Young Fiction list and is perfect for young readers ages 9 – 12.
