2012/2013 Hackmatack Children’s Choice Book Awards Nominations

The nominations are in for the 2012/2013 Hackmatack Children’s Choice Book Awards and we are happy to say that Tundra has two nominated books! They are:

From Then to Now: A Short History of the World

Hardcover | 192 pages | Ages 10+
ISBN: 978-0-88776-540-7
eBook: 978-1-77049-120-5
“Moore does an admirable job not only getting so much history in, but displaying how it can be cyclical, a constant succession of societies rising and falling. That premise will prompt much discussion among curious young minds.” – Quill & Quire

Trade Paperback | 88 pages | Ages 9-12
ISBN: 978-1-77049-206-6

“Guelph author Ed Butts delves into the history of the Great Lakes to produce this intriguing look at the tragedies they’ve caused…. While this book is geared to children ages nine to 12, cottagers and boaters of all ages will revel in each chapter and gain new respect for our Great Lakes.” – The Waterloo Region Record
