Green Earth Book Awards 2008



One of the many amazing things about the Green Earth Book Awards - given annually to a picture book, a young adult book, and a non-fiction book - is that they are the first of their kind, i.e. awards celebrating books which encourage environmental stewardship in the young. Here's me at the presentation ceremony held at Salisbury University, Maryland, the co-sponsors of the awards along with the Newton-Marasco foundation established by three fabulous sisters - Laura, Nancy, and Amy Marasco. And here's me with Nancy Marasco, Ernie Bond (Prof of Children's Literature at Salisbury U), Jean Davies Okimoto who won the picture book award with her wonderful Winston of Churchill, and Robert Buchanan of Polar Bears International.
