Theme of the selected books – dinosaurs
During this event, the storyteller will read aloud 4 picture books of Kyung Hye-won, a Korean female author — ‘Bigger Than You’, ‘Just a Bit’, ‘Elevator’, and ‘Special Friends’. One of her books – ‘ Dinosaur X-Ray’, was chosen as one of the 10 good books at the ‘18th Primary School Students Books Chart’ in Hong Kong in 2021.

But the more I draw and study about dinosaurs, the more I like them”, said Hyewon.
