Congratulations to Anne Patton and Wilfred Burton, whose book Dancing in My Bones has won a Moonbeams Spirit Award!

The awards are administered by the Independent Publishers, who say:

“The Moonbeam Children’s Book Awards  are intended to bring increased recognition to exemplary children’s books and their creators, and to support childhood literacy and life-long reading. The Awards recognize and reward the best of these books and bring them to the attention of parents, booksellers, librarians – and to children themselves.

The cause of promoting childhood literacy knows no boundaries, and the award winners illustrate that point well, coming not only from long-established publishers and university presses, but from small presses, foundations, museums, and self-published entrepreneurs.”

The Moonbeam Spirit Award is given “for dedication to children’s literacy and inspired writing, illustrating and publishing.”

Now Anne and Wilfred have another reason to dance!
