Portia Polar Bear A Finalist in International Book Awards Contest
This morning we received our first award for Portia Polar Bear’s Birthday Wish. Several months ago our dear friend Julie Cox began the lengthy process of submitting Portia to lots of different children’s book award contests. It’s a long and arduous process but well worth while if a title should win or even be recognized. So we were all elated to see that Portia Polar Bear’s Birthday Wish was a Finalist.
