I wasn't going to post again this week, as I'm busy welcoming home my husband and daughter from their cross-country trip, BUT . . . news this BIG just couldn't wait:
We Are Girls Who Love to Run is a semifinalist for the Moonbeam Children's Book Award in the Mind-Body-Spirit category!!!!
The final medals for each category will be announced next Friday. Thanks to all of you who have been supporters of this writing dream of mine - from the moment the idea came to me through these crazy days of spreading the word about the book. I couldn't have done it alone. Seriously. This book is my third child . . . and we all know it takes a village to raise a child.
Be sure to check back next week to see how it all turns out!
Haven't gotten yourself/your teacher/your coach/niece/daughter/sister/neighbor/local school/girl scout troop a copy of the book yet? Be sure to read here to see how you can get your hands on a copy - the remaining donation copies are likely to go fast now that the book is getting some exciting press! And, be sure to let others know - in these days of budget cuts, school libraries are getting shorted. Wouldn't your local elementary or middle school love to get a FREE bilingual hardback book that celebrates strong girls, positive self-esteem, healthy choices and goal-setting? That's what I thought!
