Another Treasure for My Pocket

Last night, at the CANSCAIP Mentor’s Dinner honouring my husband, Peter Carver, I learned from Rick Wilks of Annick Press that A Pocket Can Have A Treasure In It has been short-listed for the Ruth & Sylvia Schwartz Award.

Let’s hope that the young readers at Market Lane Junior School in Toronto make their selection for the prize wisely! 🙂

    Congratulations, Kathy! I knew when I first read A Pocket… that it was going to be another hit.
