A World of Stories

A collection of stories by

A WORLD OF STORIES IS MORE THAN JUST A BOOK. It is an international community of people coming together to celebrate literacy, and help bring awareness to important issues that affect people from all over the world.

All the authors and illustrators generously donated their time and talents so that the revenues from this project could be donated to Rotary District 5020 to be spent on literacy projects around the world.

Each of the stories is themed around a non-denominational holiday so that ALL people can celebrate them together, regardless of their cultural background.
