A ONCE UPON A WORLD SPIN-OFF: Building off our well-received Once Upon A World series, in which we place fairy tales in different cultures around the world, Celebrate the World aims to show readers how different cultures celebrate and cherish the holidays important to them. Every year there are new (and old) books for Christmas, Hanukkah, Thanksgiving, Halloween, Easter, and more commercially popular holidays. But what about the other holidays celebrated around the world, such as Ramadan, Dia de los Muertos, Kwanzaa, Chinese New Year, and beyond? These holidays are underrepresented in book form, and our goal is to fill that gap. Illustrator Archana Sreenivasan works in a style that draws inspiration from traditional Kalamkari textiles and adds a modern twist.

The Story House is an independent, bookstore for children and young adults.  We are located within Dawson's Market in Rockville Town Center and in our renovated trolley bus.  The Story House trolley travels throughout the DC area, partnering with schools, faith groups and organizations on book fairs and other customized book events.
