book cover A Mind With Wings Wins NCSS Award

A Mind With Wings: The Story Of Henry David Thoreau by Gerald Hausman and Loretta Hausman has been selected as a Notable Social Studies Trade Book for Young People 2007, a cooperative project of the National Council for the Social Studies (NCSS) and the Childrens Book Council.

Books selected for this annual award are written primarily for children in grades K-8. The selection committee looks for books that emphasize human relations, represent a diversity of groups and are sensitive to a broad range of cultural experiences, present an original theme or a fresh slant on a traditional topic, are easily readable and of high literary quality, and have a pleasing format and, when appropriate, illustrations that enrich the text.
