I’ve just received the very exciting news that the series that my title ‘THE DAY THE ENERGIES SAVED THE WORLD’ featured in has just won the Educational Publishing Australia Awards 2014 for best primary resource. I’m proud to announce that it’s officially classed as a top resource for schools, perfect for year 3-6 teachers.
A bit of background on how this all came about:
I was recently given the opportunity to write a Year 3 reader for Pearson Education. It was a lot of fun writing a fiction story based on the educational science topic of ‘night and day.’ Through my fiction reader ‘The Day the Energies Saved the World’ I could explore and explain this concept to kids by taking my characters on a futuristic science fiction adventure. What was even more exciting was that my eldest daughter happened to be learning this very subject at school this term, not long after the book first came out. To top it all off it’s very exciting to have the series win an award.
