First Snow in the Woods wins 9th award
Authors of Stranger in the Woods and Lost in the Woods exuberant!

Carl R. Sams II and Jean Stoick’s third children’s book, First Snow in the Woods, is the winner of nine awards since its release seven months ago. Like their first two books, Stranger in the Woods, and Lost in the Woods, gentle lessons of nature are immersed in a story perfect for children of all ages. “Winning nine awards this early helps us realize that our lessons of nature are reaching children,” said co-author Jean Stoick, a former middle school art teacher. “We wanted to show how each creature follows their heartsong.”

“I am thrilled with the awards!” Sams II exclaimed. “We hope children will learn that change — and sometimes fear of change — is a normal part of life. We all have to listen to our heartsongs.”

The awards include: Hermes Creative Awards Platinum Award: Photography/Publications; Hermes Creative Awards Gold Recipient: Publications/Books; Foreword Magazine Book of the Year: Finalist; Midwest Book of the Year: Finalist; Mom’s Choice Awards Gold Recipient: Animal Kingdom; Mom’s Choice Awards Gold Recipient: Illustrated Series; iParenting Media Award Winner; Eric Hoffer Award Winner: First Runner Up.

First Snow in the Woods is available for $19.95 at many area gift shops and book stores, including Borders and Barnes & Noble, or by calling 1-800-552-1867. For more information visit www.carlsams.com or www.strangerinthewoods.com .
