All I can say is WOW. What an honor to be surrounded by so many other wonderful books like Little Fox in the Forest by Stephanie Graegin (Best Adventure) and Lines by Suzy Lee (Best on Creativity) on The Huffington Post’s Best Books of 2017 List! The Rooster Who Would Not Be Quiet! made the list with Best Read-Aloud.
