Austin Macauley Publishers, the London based independent publishing house with further branches in Sharjah, UAE and New York, has announced a brand new sustainability-themed Dubai Expo 2020 children’s title to be launched at Sharjah Children’s Reading Festival on 20 May 2021.
The Expo 2020 Dubai Mascots Activity book has been created in the form of an interactive activity book. The book has been developed to help younger children fully engage with the themes of the Expo: ‘Connecting Minds, Creating the Future’ and ‘Opportunity, Mobility and Sustainability’. Young readers will consider the world in all its natural beauty, the imminency of technology, and people’s diversity, language, and cultures. The Mascot Activity Book has over 50 puzzles, games, quizzes and facts about the environment, sustainability, and technology. Although dedicated to children, the book will prove fun for the entire family and a way to engage in the ever-pressing themes.

About the Book Launch
The launch will mark the official release of the Activity Book before the six-month-long event in October. The book has been highly anticipated by Austin Macauley Publishers. International Publishing Director Jade Robertson states: “We can’t wait to see young readers and their reaction to this vibrant and educational book. We look forward to igniting children’s interest about Expo prior to the event and the evermore important themes of sustainability and technology.”
At the launch, attendees of the SCRF can look forward to being among the first to purchase the activity book, alongside free colouring pencils, a picture with Expo mascots, exclusive to the launch event at SCRF. Children in attendance can also participate in a sustainability-themed activity on Austin Macauley’s stand to be entered into a competition to win official Expo merchandise.
