Food for the Future is a Junior Library Guild Selection!

I’m thrilled to announce my first children’s book award ever! My book even gets a gold sticker!

For those who are not familiar with Junior Library Guild, they are a curating subscription service for libraries. Their team of expert librarians reads children’s books before they are published to pick “award-worthy and award-winning titles for libraries across the country. They have a track record to back this up.

95% of JLG Gold Standard Selections go on to earn starred or favorable reviews and industry honors and awards.

It is a great honor to be chosen. On behalf of the team at Barefoot Books, Robert and I would like to give our heartfelt thanks to Junior Library Guild for this distinction!
