SOS Children's Village Croatia and Croatian Post present The Most Beautiful Fairy Tales for Children

The book, priced at HRK 49.99, can be purchased at the offices of the Croatian Post and at the official website www.sos-dsh.hr. Make this book your Christmas gift to the children!

The contest that ran from September 1 to September 27 called Illustrations for the Most Beautiful Fairy Tales for Children drew more than 700 contestants with drawings featuring 12 most beautiful fairy tales. The winners were selected through online voting. Thirty two most popular drawings were included in the book The Most Beautiful Fairy Tales for Children, which was released today. The book can be purchased for HRK 49.99.

Croatian Post showed its support by kindly letting us use the Croatian Post exhibition space in Jurišićeva Street in Zagreb for the book launch. The launch took place on the morning of St. Nicholas Day. Adding to the magic was The Puppet Factory Theatre, which performed a play called Clumsy Santa Claus for the attendees. All children in the audience received gifts.
The book is available through the offices of the Croatian Post and the official website of SOS Children's Village Croatia.

“We are so proud that we can finally share with you this book that had such a tremendously positive impact on the imagination and artistry of our children. The book contains only a handful of hundreds of imaginative and beautiful drawings that arrived from all parts of Croatia, and even from abroad. The Most Beautiful Fairy Tales for Children is a celebration of the innocence of children and motifs that allow children to learn about love, fear, and distinguishing between good and evil. Above all else, this book stands for everything that makes children so wonderful and unceasingly fascinating to us: their innocence and their awe-inspiring imagination and intuition”, said Wendy Zečić, member of the SOS Children's Village Croatia Board of Directors, during the book launch at the Croatian Post gallery.

By purchasing The Most Beautiful Fairy Tales for Children, you help children who found home in SOS Children's Villages Lekenik and Ladimirevci. For additional holiday cheer, we also offer Christmas and New Year’s greeting cards created by the children from SOS Children's Villages.
