I am excited to announce that my book, Finding Ecohappiness: Fun Nature Activities to Help Your Kids Feel Happier and Calmer, was just honored with The Arlene Book Award: Books That Make a Difference from American Society of Journalists and Authors (ASJA).
ASJA member Howard Eisenberg established the Arlene Eisenberg Memorial Fund to honor his late wife, the author of What to Expect When You’re Expecting and other bestselling books that made a difference in the lives of mothers worldwide. The winning book or freelance article must have “made a difference” by inspiring positive action within a locale or community, society, or the world. In the past, the award has been given for articles or books that inspired readers to do such things as lobby for legislation or form an advocacy group. Past winners have also stirred officials to launch an investigation, correct an injustice, or remove a hazard.
The judges reflected, “With technology so prevalent in our lives, sometimes too prevalent, connecting with nature feels more important than ever, and especially for kids. This book offers great practical tips that anyone with kids can immediately put into practice.”
