John McClure, president of Signalman Publishing, stated, “We are thrilled to have Oma Tells Histories as a nominee for the 2013 CSPA Book of the Year in the Children’s category. Oma picked out some of the great stories of the Bible that kids love to hear, and she does it in a way that helps parents introduce the God of the Bible to their children. It has been a big hit with my own kids!”
The final 2013 Book of the Year selection is based on voting by retailers, publishers, authors and readers. The voting ballot can be accessed online at: http://www.christianpublishers.net/
