I am so excited and honoured to share that The Body Book has been named the winner of the IBPA’s* Benjamin Franklin Gold Medal Award in the children’s picture book 0-3 category!
In the indie book world, it can feel hard to gauge the response to your work sometimes, since everything happens on a smaller scale, so recognition at this level is a very welcome cause for celebration. Unfortunately I was unable to attend the awards gala in Portland, but was lucky that my fellow Promontory author, Pearl R. Meaker, author of her own award winner, The Devil’s Music was able to accept on my behalf. Thanks Pearl! I’m very very excited about the gold stickers.
