Elizabeth Mrazik-Cleaver Picture Book Award!

Wahoo!! How To by Julie Morstad is the winner of the Elizabeth Mrazik-Cleaver Picture Book Award for 2014!

And... Wild Berries by Julie Flett is an honor book! We are so so proud of our authors/illustrators!
As the jury says: "How To is intelligent. It is a book that is raucous and quiet, active and contemplative, child-focused and ageless. It presents a unique perspective on “seeing” things and opens up all sorts of possibilities."

Horn Book review for The Wild Berries

A beautiful review from The Horn Book for Wild Berries by Julie Flett

“The muted earth tones of the watercolor and collage illustrations in browns, grays, and reds perfectly complement the quiet tone of the story, as they offer a sense of the natural world in which Clarence is at home." Thanks, Horn Book!
