At the Beach Finalist in Book Awards
Ned and I are excited that At the Beach: explore and discover the New Zealand seashore has been named as a finalist in the 2013 New Zealand Post Children's Book Awards. See the announcement here:
Only four books were named in the non-fiction category so we feel particularly pleased that the judges thought our book deserved to be in the top 4 non-fiction books for 2013. If you are school age, you can vote for At the Beach in the Children's Choice Award, through schools, libraries and bookshops.
Did you know At the Beach has a removable identification card tucked inside the back cover? Everyone we've talked to loves this feature because it's so easy to take to the beach.
There are some ideas for teachers and parents on the Craig Potton Publishing website http://www.craigpotton.co.nz/at-the-beach
Please pass the word around, if you love our book, vote for it in the Children's Choice.
