Witnessing the success it had among the readership and acknowledging the importance of such books, we that this project should have continuation. So two years later ARI Literature Foundation in cooperation with US Embassy Armenia launches Inclusive Children’s Book Series DIFFERENT Stories project aimed at helping parents and teacher to talk about inclusivity with kids aged 5+ through picture books. In the frames of the project two picture books The Champion and I Speak Through Dancing were created by writer Gayane Aghabalyan and illustrator Lusine Sahakyan. Project team will visits all regions of Armenia to present the books at schools and talk to teachers about using books to promotes inclusivity.
