“Teacher” is finalist in CLIPPA awards

“Today the Teacher Changed our Seats” has been named as a finalist in the 2014 K-2 CT CLIPPA (Children’s Literature Independently Published Principals’ Award) awards. 
Children’s Literature Independently Published Principals’ Award celebrates books for elementary-school-age children that offer fun, learning and creativity and were created by authors who have self-published their works. The books nominated for the CLIPPA are judged by Elementary School Principals, Reading Specialists and Distinguished Authors.
From the review:Many messages fill the simple text and hand painted illustrations. The story is about mathematical concept of grouping at face value, but clearly addresses a child’s fear of being excluded. Story illustrates that not only a teacher, but children, can resolve problems. Illustrations present extensive racial/ethnic diversity.
