I am happy to announce that my book has won the prestigious Creative Child Magazine Award for 2012. I am hoping winning this award will help me reach many more readers. I am passionate about writing my books as trilingual because I understand the importance of language acquisition at an early age.
I have a second passion. I give a portion of all proceeds from my book sales to Mercy & Sharing, an organization dedicated to helping poor children of my native Haiti. I have one more child to attend college and this is one way I can help the poor children of Haiti by sharing my book proceeds.

About Creative Child Awards Program
Each year, Creative Child holds a 2-day event held in Henderson, Nevada where over a hundred guest reviewers (moms and education professionals) are invited to attend a review event at the local convention center. All products are divided into categories and displayed at various review stations. Guest reviewers are asked to sit and review each product at one station, then move to another station, and so forth and so on. A review form is provided to each guest to aid him or her in evaluating each product. The review forms are to include written comments and a score value based on criteria that corresponds to the product’s category.
Finally, all review forms are collected, scores tabulated, and comments reviewed. Based on the scores and comments, certain products are determined to be finalists and receive a prestigious Preferred Choice award. The Seal of Excellence is another prestigious award given to those products that are not finalists but do exceed expectations based on the criteria for nurturing creativity and education in children.
