Oct. 15, 2012 - PRLog -- Eartha Gets Well, a children’s book written by Conway residents Kristi and Dr. Daniel Falk, has a shiny new Moonbeam Award to show off this fall. The brightly illustrated picture book promoting healthy choices for kids secured a Bronze Medal from Moonbeam Children’s Book Awards in the Health Issues Category. In June, the book was entered in the award program which recognizes excellence in children’s books and aims to support childhood literacy. Winners for the awards in 39 categories covering multiple subjects, styles, and age groups were announced this week.

This is the first book in what will be a series of adventures and lessons for the title character Eartha and her dog Cooper.  This is the first book for the Falks as well as their first award.

“The Falks deserve this award,” says Terri Leidich, president of BQB Publishing. “The story behind this book is such a positive one rooted deeply in their community service efforts. They’ve worked extremely hard to grow Eartha Gets Well into the educational tool it is today. They should be very proud of this book and its first award. We at BQB Publishing are extremely pleased with Eartha Gets Well and all of the effort the Falks put into promoting its positive message.”

According to their website, The Moonbeam Children's Book Awards are intended to bring increased recognition to exemplary children's books and their creators, and to support literacy among youth and life-long reading. The Awards recognize and reward the best of these books and bring them to the attention of parents, booksellers, librarians—and to children themselves.

Eartha Gets Well is available to purchase through BQB’s online store (, Amazon (, Barnes & Noble (, or your favorite bookstore. It is also available in eBook format through iTunes, Kobo, OverDrive, and other eBook distributers. For more information about Eartha Gets Well, please visit or
