We are very pleased to announce that two AAP parenting books recently received prestigious awards:
- Mental Health, Naturally, by Kathi J. Kemper, MD, MPH, FAAP, received a Gold 2011 Book of the Year Award from ForeWord Reviews magazine and was also honored with a Silver 2011 Nautilus Award.
- Heading Home With Your Newborn, 2nd Edition, by Laura A. Jana, MD, FAAP, and Jennifer Shu, MD, FAAP, received a Silver 2011 Book of the Year Award from ForeWord Reviews magazine.
ForeWord Reviews' Book of the Year Awards were established to bring increased attention to librarians and booksellers of the literary and graphic achievements of independent publishers and their authors. Finalists are determined by a jury of judges consisting of editors and reviewers of ForeWord Reviews, booksellers, librarians, and other industry professionals. Their decisions are based on editorial excellence, professional production, originality of the narrative, author credentials relative to the book, and the value the book adds to its genre.
The Nautilus Awards recognizes books and audio books that promote spiritual growth, conscious living & positive social change, while at the same time they stimulate the "imagination" and offer the reader "new possibilities" for a better life and a better world. Winners are selected via a three-tier system of judging books that offers a deliberate course of examination and scrutiny designed to sort and separate books as they are measured against a carefully prepared list of notable characteristics. It is carried out by three teams of highly qualified, experienced reviewers located across the U.S. whose successful careers as editors, writers, librarians, schoolteachers and bookstore owners are matched with a passion for books that offer new ideas and options for a better world for everyone.
