Children’s Book Week is always an exciting time to share our books with kids, our authors travel to events in their community, and we post fun activities and announce book giveaways right here. This year is extra special for us, not only are six new titles hitting shelves this week, but we have another reason to celebrate, Kali’s Story: An Orphaned Polar Bear Rescue is a winner in the Children’s Choice Book Awards.
The announcement came late last night and we are still amazed that the only nonfiction nominee from our little office won the popular vote. Don’t get me wrong the bear as well as the book is adorable; and Jennifer Keats Curtis and John Gomes could not have captured his personality and the journey from a den in Northern Alaska to his friend at the Buffalo Zoo any better. So today we are overjoyed with the win and it is a day of celebration and would like to express our gratitude to all the little readers and voters in this year’s awards!
