Busy bee

It’s been a while since our last blog post, so we thought we would update you on some of the exciting things that have been happening at Unuhi HQ in the last months.

(*Let us know what expressions you use in your language to say that you’ve been working hard!)

1. We’ve launched our new story writing competition (deadline: 30 June 2020) 

We are inviting adults all over the world to submit a short children’s story of just 225 words to us (15 words x 15 pages). The winning entry will receive £100 and will be professionally illustrated and translated into 20 languages, to be published on our lovely Unuhi app! More details at https://unuhi.com/june-2020-story-competition/.

You still have plenty of time to write and submit your story, so sharpen your pencils and fire up your laptops!

2. We’ve been working on new books to be launched in summer 2020 

We’ve listened to our fans and have been working hard on new books to be launched in summer 2020. As requested, we will focus on fairy tales and fables this time, so watch this space! Our illustrators are still hard at work, but we will show you some glimpses of their lovely artwork on our social media channels (subscribe below).

The books will be published in 20 languages, of course: English, Arabic, Danish, Dutch, Filipino, Finnish, French, German, Hindi, Italian, Japanese, Mandarin (Simplified), Norwegian, Polish, Portuguese (European), Romanian, Russian, Spanish, Swedish, and Thai. 📚

3. We have increased our social media presence AND we are planning a newsletter 

In addition to our existing social media channels, you can now also find us on LinkedINIf you haven’t already done so, please follow us on the social media channels of your choice for news, special offers, entertainment and interesting articles & stories from our multilingual world:

We will also launch a newsletter in due course. We won’t spam you and only e-mail if there is interesting news.  Subscribe to our newsletter here. 📰

4. We’re already working on new story ideas 

As you may know, we always are on the lookout for new authors and illustrators, as well as for good story ideas for bilingual children aged 3-8+. So, if you would like to be involved or have a great story idea, let us know on our social media channels above or contact us directly. We look forward to hearing from you! 💡

Finally, if you haven’t tried Unuhi yet, do download our free book “Rikki’s Week of Weather” to get a taste of what we offer! Available on iOS and Android. Let us know what you think! 😊
