Niad Artists Win Prestigious Award
We just learned that DisabilityLand by Alan Brightman and illustrated by the NIAD artists have won the 2009 Independent Book Publishers Association award for the best book in the Parenting/Family category. This is the very first time Select Books, the publisher, has won this award.
Tell me, how can I reward our teachers for their outstanding work?? At our staff meeting last week, one of them spoke that sometimes she leaves NIAD thinking that all she did that day was prevent catastrophes, change Depends, take colored pencils out of someone’s backback.
There is no way I can adequately thank our art teachers for what they do.
