The Purple Dragonfly Book Awards are geared toward stories that appeal to children of all ages. We are looking for stories that inspire, inform, teach or entertain. A Purple Dragonfly Book Awards seal on your book’s cover tells parents, grandparents, educators and caregivers they are giving children the very best in reading excellence.
Monster Slayer is a story based on my childhood. Growing up, I was not very kind to my little sister. As life presented me with challenges, my little sister was always there to save the day and I don’t know what I would do without her. I think it’s fitting that this bilingual picture book (English & Spanish) is being recognized as a book that helps teach siblings the importance of family and celebrates the richness of cultural diversity.
Here are some of my favorite Monster Slayer illustrations so beautifully done by the very talented Lina Safar.
Congratulations to all the 2016 Purple Dragonfly Book Award Winners!
Dragonflies are reminders that we are light and can reflect the light in powerful ways if we choose to do so.
