March 8, 2012 - PRLog -- Fifo “When I Grow Up” wins its first award placing 2nd in the Royal Dragonfly Book Awards in the category of “Children’s Picture Books Five and Under.”   Fifo “50 States” wins four more, making this twelve awards in twelve months. Placing 1st in “Best Illustrations”, 2nd in “Children’s Picture Books Six and Older”, 2nd in “Travel” and Honorable Mention in “Education.”

“Winning any place in the Royal Dragonfly Book Awards is a huge honor because in order to maintain the integrity of the contest, a minimum score is required before a 1st or 2nd place or Honorable Mention will be awarded to the entrant – even if it is the only entry in a category,” explains Linda Radke, president of Five Star Publications, the sponsor of the Dragonfly Book Awards. “Competition is steep, too, because there is no publication date limit as long as the book is still in print.”

“Anytime you win an award for something you have worked so hard on is exciting, and to place in five different categories, in such a prestigious contest like the Royal Dragonfly Book Awards, is truly an honor,” states Rose.

“Fifo ’50 States’” is a handy bear’s alphabetical travelogue featuring all 50 of the United States of America as toured by the bear, Fifo. Told in verse, illustrated in quirky color miniature travel posters, “Fifo ’50 States’” is the second book in this multi-award winning series. Designed to be memorable and enjoyable, “Fifo ’50 States’” packs lots of U.S. history and geography into 100+ pages of illustrated verse. Children age 4-10 will learn lots of fascinating things about all 50 states as they follow Fifo in his dreams of exploring the United States of America. – Midwest Book Review
