Announcing the 2006 Skipping Stones Honor Award Winners!
The 2006 Skipping Stones Honor Awards committee is pleased to announce the winners of our 13th Annual Book Awards. Twenty-five honored books, in the following four categories, encourage understanding of world's diverse cultures, nature and ecological richness. They promote cooperation, nonviolence, respect for differing viewpoints, and close relationships in human societies. Together, the honored titles offer a great variety of learning experiences for all ages.
These exceptional, educational and entertaining books and teaching resources for K-12 students and educators (that includes all parents) will also make a great summer reading fun. Reviews of the 2006 award winners appear in the summer issue (Volume 18, no. 3) of Skipping Stones magazine, available in mid-May. The winning titles will also receive honor award certificates for the authors, illustrators and publishers, and an attractive golden honor award seal for decorating the book covers.
