Local author and educator Frances Gilbert has been selected as a finalist for The Children’s Literature Independently Published Principals’ Award (CLIPPA) for her book, Today the Teacher Changed our Seats. It is one of just ten books selected as finalists for the CLIPPA, which will be announced on October 1, 2014.
The CLIPPA honors outstanding children’s books that offer fun, learning and creativity and were self-published by independent authors. Entries were judged on originality, learning quality and use of language standards by a judging committee comprising nine elementary school principals, educators and authors from across the country. There are two categories: children’s books for Grades K-2 and children’s books for Grades 3-4.
