An Honor and a Privilege

Posted on October 14, 2011 at 10:00 AM

Yesterday, I received word that my first children's book, Sam And The Dragon, has been selected for the 2011 KART Kids Book List. The Kids Are Readers Too (KART) Foundation is the charitable giving branch of PediNatural® Books. From their website: "The KART Foundation believes that introducing books at an early age will allow children to naturally master the developmental milestones that are essential to solid learning foundations." I couldn't agree more.

I'm told there were over 1000 submissions and only 32 were chosen to be included. I feel honored and privileged to be included with the likes of:

Swimming Along

This Fish, That Fish, Even a Hat Fish
by David A Forgensi

Daddy Did I Ever Say?

Congratulations Eric - it's an amazing honour indeed. My best friend's child is called Sam, and since your book is also onthis great list I've just purchased it for him for Christmas.
