New children’s literature award – for plant and ecology themed children’s books

Did you know that there was a literary award for children’s books that are plant, garden and ecology-themed? I didn’t. Check out the new “Growing Good Kids – Excellence in Children’s Literature Awards” Program.

The 2009 winners are:
The Apple-pip Princess by Jane Ray;
Flip, Float, Fly!: Seeds on the Move by JoAnn Early Macken and Pam Paparone; and Big Yellow Sunflower by Frances Barry.

About Cheryl Rainfield

I write the books I needed and couldn't find as a teen. I write teen fiction--paranormal fantasy and gritty realistic fiction. I'm the author of SCARS (WestSide Books, 2010) #1 ALA QuickPicks, and Governor General Literary Award Finalist, HUNTED (WestSide Books, Oct 2011), STAINED (Harcourt, 2013), The Last Dragon (HIP Books, Sept 2009), and Walking Both Sides (HIP Books, 2011). I also enjoy drawing, surfing the web, connecting with people I like, doing crafts, and being with my dog.
