I am ecstatic to announce that “Rubber Shoes…A Lesson in Gratitude/Los zapatos de goma…Una Lección de Gratitud “ has just been awarded A Moonbeam Children’s Book Award for best Spanish language book.
Thank you for your continued support and good wishes!
The Moonbeam Children’s Book Awards are intended to bring increased recognition to exemplary children’s books and their creators, and to celebrate children’s books and life-long reading. Each year’s entries are judged by expert panels of youth educators, librarians, booksellers, and book reviewers of all ages. Award recipients receive gold, silver and bronze medals and stickers depicting a mother and child reading and silhouetted by a full moon.
Many of our award-winning books encourage children to be generous and compassionate, to stand up to bullies, and to believe in fulfilling their dreams. The diversity of the winning publishers proves that promoting childhood literacy knows no boundaries, as medal-winners came not only from long-established publishers and university presses, but from small presses, foundations, and self-published entrepreneurs.
“Rubber Shoes…A Lesson in Gratitude/Los zapatos de goma…Una Lección de Gratitud “ was also mentioned on the Bilingual Shelf in the MidWest Review!
