Immi wins a prize!

Immi's Gift (American title, Peachtree Publishers) wins a Judge's Choice Illustrators Award at the children's museum in Philadelphia.

The Please Touch Museum's Book Award is the only award of its kind presented by a children's museum to honor the publication of quality books for young children. The award is given to books that are imaginative, exceptionally illustrated, and that help foster a child's life-long love of reading. 

What a treat to be flown over for a few days to receive the award, participate in events, hold some workshops and meet the most amazing people!

Thank you to Education Coordinator Heather Boyd for organising everything.

And playtime!
