Phil Hoose & Reader at Green Earth Books Award 2009

Phillip Hoose has been once again honored with a Green Earth Book Award. The award is the nation’s first environmental stewardship book award for children and young adult books. Over 80 winning and honor books have been honored since 2005 including Hoose’s Hey, Little Ant and The Race to Save the Lord God Bird.

“One of the beauties of the Earth Book Award is that it recognizes an author who’s writing about a topic that is of vital importance to our Earth, yet it’s an area that, until recently, received little attention.” –Pam Spencer Holley, author of the American Library Association’s Quick and Popular Reads for Teens

Congratulations to all the winning and honor books!
