Amazon Recognizes "One Proud Penny" and More Good News from Washington State

"The big story of the small but important penny is fascinating and fun for young readers who are interested in non-fiction." - Seira Wilson, Amazon Editor

Thanks again to the folks at Amazon for all their support!

Washington State, which is Amazon’s home base, has been a great state for One Proud Penny. I am honored that One Proud Penny is a 2019 nominee for Washington’s Children’s Choice Picture Book Award. And I loved their recent tweet about celebrating “Lost Penny Day” on February 12th by reading the book.

Last but not least, the librarians in Washington State have been incredible. Special shout-outs to the Northwood Library (Mercer Island, WA) and Fernwood Elementary Library (Bothell, WA).
