Authors of New York Time’s best-selling In The Woods series of children’s books win IP Award at BookExpo
First Snow in the Woods wins 10th award!

MILFORD, MI - Carl R. Sams II and Jean Stoick’s newest children’s book, First Snow in the Woods, has won its 10th award, winning the IP (Independent Publisher) Gold Award for the best children’s book. The award was presented at BookExpo America in Los Angeles, California.

First Snow in the Woods also won Disney’s IParenting Media Best Products of 2008 Awards, and the Mom’s Choice Awards, honoring authors for excellence in creating quality family-friendly products. Sams and Stoick were interviewed and filmed for both awards during BookExpo America.

Their three best-selling children’s books, Stranger in the Woods, Lost in the Woods, and First Snow in the Woods, and two movies, Stranger in the Woods: The Movie, and Lost in the Woods: The Movie, have received over 60 awards. The three books could be the most award-winning children’s photographic books ever published.

“Our books and movies teach children gentle lessons of nature. The awards let us know that we are on target,” said co-author Jean Stoick, a former middle school art teacher.

The couple’s books and movies can be found at many area gift shops and book stores, including Barnes & Noble and Borders. For more information visit www.strangerinthewoods.com or call 1-800-552-1867.
