I just received this message from Free Spirit Publishing (I’ve added some links):
"High IQ Kids: Collected Insights, Information, and Personal Stories from the Experts (978-1-57542-261-9), edited by Kiesa Kay, Deborah Robson, and Judy Fort Brenneman, has won the 2008 Legacy Book TM
Award in the parent category.
"The Texas Association for the Gifted and Talented (TAGT) honors outstanding books annually for their positive impact on the lives of gifted children. The Legacy Book Award is the only American book award focused on meeting the unique needs of gifted and talented children."
There are three categories: educator, parent/family, and scholar. News of the 2008 awards is not on the site as I write this, but here is information about previous years (and probably 2008 as soon as they update).
Hurray! This project took many years and a bunch of people to put together. Nice (fantastic) to see it being acknowledged.
I think Skepchick readers might be interested in this!
