Good News - Great Honor



We learned this morning that Nubs: The True Story of a Mutt, a Marine and a Miracle, is the recipient of a Christopher Award, in the Literature for Young People category. These are awards given to media that “affirm the highest values of the human spirit." Over 350 books were submitted and read not only by reviewers but by select groups of kids.

If you can't find me, look up! I'm up there on Cloud Nine.
