Award Winning Childrens Book


To be one of the many Award Winning Childrens Books on the market today is cool, but the latest review for Saltwater Taffy is super SAWEET cool.  The review of Saltwater Taffy by Dr. Karen P, a reviewer from Readers Favorite council who has spent a lifetime working with children and families, dissects the purpose of Saltwater Taffy down to a SAWEET T.  She wrote a long review, but for the sake of your time, here is the first sentence in the review:

“Saltwater Taffy” by Eric Delabarre is one of the best children’s
books I’ve read in years!

Award Winning Children's BooksGetting a childrens book review like this from someone who professionally counsels children is awesome.  Being an award winning children’s book author is super cool awesome, but I am always thrilled when a reviewer really “gets” the purpose of this Middle Grade Adventure Novel.

As an author of books for kids, the one thing on my mind when I’m writing is to make sure I entertain the reader.  The idea of inspiring a young mind is amazing.  The possibilities are endless.  Imagine creating a lasting impression on a young mind?  An impression that can last a lifetime…is awesome!

I’m glad you enjoyed the adventure Karen!  You can read her review of Saltwater Taffy on the Readers Favorite website and hey, if you love books, you can become a reviewer or follow them on Facebook!
