The Gelett Burgess Children's Book Award

I am excited to announce "Gifts From the Enemy" has won another award!

The Gelett Burgess Children's Book Award advisory council selected it as the top book in its World History category for 2015.

They said- "A true account of a teens survival during the Nazi Holocaust. “ Gifts from the Enemy” is not only a moving story but a great resource to explain to children about a very turbulent time in world history. A truly meaningful story of social injustice and how one individuals act of kindness can make a difference."

Here is a description of the award and a link to the website;

The Gelett Burgess Children's Book Awards advisory council looks for books that entertain and teach with an energetic and creative approach. The books the Center selects must stimulate the child's imagination, as well as inspire them creatively. Advisory council members want to know a book will make an impact in a child's life by helping them grow: socially, emotionally, ethically, intellectually, and physically.
