Happy Anniversary, Green Earth Book Award

Washashore-front-cover.jpgWe congratulate the Green Earth Book Awards on 10 Years of honoring environmental children’s literature and their donation this year of 10,000 environmental books with a message of stewardship to area schools!

Phil Hoose was pleased to join the celebrations on two previous years when they honored his books, Hey, Litte Ant and Moonbird.

“Being able to deliver engaging material about the environment in such a big way is a perfect representation of our first decade of success,” said Ian Kline, chairman of the board. “We’ve engaged thousands of students with books, outdoor classrooms, and even a student-designed nature trail. The impact is incredible – we’ve seen children of all ages embrace environmental responsibility through our programs.”

Jennifer O’Connell – The Eye of the Whale a Rescue Story (picture book)

Kathi Appelt – The True Blue Scouts of Sugar Man Swamp (children’s fiction)

Suzanne Goldsmith, Washashore (young adult fiction)
