    Award Winning Children's Book Author Dr Nicole Announces New Award For 'Parents For Sale'

    Dr. Nicole recently announced that 'Parents For Sale' is a Bronze Medal winner in the 2015 Reader's Favorite International Book Awards Contest in the Children - Animals category.

    In the traditions of Walt Disney and Dr. Seuss, Dr. Nicole breathes life into inanimate objects and wildly entertaining characters that engage children in powerful ways. Through parent/child interaction, her works develop a love for reading while helping children develop the most important skill of all - critical thinking.

    The award is the latest in a long lineup of awards for 'Parents For Sale'. Other awards include 2015 Dragonfly Books Award: Chapters Book: Honorable Mention; 2015 New York Book Festival: Children’s Book: Honorable Mention and the 2015 Hollywood Book Festival: Children’s Book: Honorable Mention. 'Parents For Sale' is Story Monster Approved, and has received a 5 Star rating from Readers’ Favorite.

    "I am pleased," stated Dr. Nicole, "to be awarded the Bronze Medal. "In my writing career, I have the honor to be noted as an award-winning bestseller in Quebec. I am truly grateful and honored for this Reader’s Favorite recognition. It opens the doors to a worldwide career."

    Dr. Nicole has sold over 150,000 books in her career. She is highly regarded for her work with children's books and a health guide for families. Her goals are to create in children a love for reading and to create interaction and engagement, all with a focus on helping children develop the most important skill of all - critical thinking.

    In 'Parents For Sale', a 44-page, color-illustrated chapter-book, the Clark family encounters a dilemma. Twins Luke and Lucy don’t take care of their dog, Pistachio, as they had promised their parents they would. One day, their mom threatens to sell the dog. A few hours later, when Luke and Lucy’s parents go to the store, the twins concoct a plan to get rid of their parents, which could take Pistachio away from them forever. The book teaches many lessons including responsibility and the value of family relationships.

    Dr. Nicole will release two new children's books in November of this year; 'Are You Eating My Lunch?' and 'Strike At Charles' Farm'.

    In 'Are You Eating My Lunch?', a 24-page, bilingual (English/French) picture book, a young boy named Xavier visits the zoo. At lunch time, he can’t find his lunch box. He decides to investigate. He asks all the animals the same question: “Are Eating My Lunch?” During his investigation, he learns the animals’ favorite food.

    In 'Strike At Charles' Farm', a 24-page, bilingual (English/French) picture book, A young boy named Charles leads a farm. One day, he faces a problem, as the farm animals go on strike. They refuse to work, want to eat more food or sleep longer. In this book, children will learn the value of work, and that with rights come responsibilities.

    "As an author," Dr. Nicole concluded, "my intentions regarding being an author are to inspire children to read, to set their imaginations free and to encourage good decision making regarding health, safety and moral responsibility. Writing children’s books is a way for me to give back and be a positive resource to the community. It is a way that I can positively express myself while having some fun and at the same time being a positive role model for both children and parents. These are just a few small steps to make the world a better place. I hope that my books inspire children to set their minds free and work to make the world a better place."
