A moment of shameless self-promotion
A Love for Learning: Motivation and the Gifted Child has been named an Arizona Best Book (education category) by the Arizona Book Publishing Association. And it also has won an Indie Award of Excellence (which honors books from independent publishers and small presses), once again for best education book. Carol Strip Whitney and I are very pleased and gratified. This book is for parents, grandparents, teachers, principals, counselors, psychologists, pediatricians, and anyone else who deals with gifted kids, both in school and out. It's easy to read and gives a lot of information about why gifted kids lose their motivation to learn in school--and what to do about it. The title is much more intimidating than the text. Before these two honors, the book had won an iParenting Award of Merit, so it's pretty heavily stickered!
