Baking with Friends Awarded the Purple Dragonfly Award



The judges of the Purple Dragonfly Book Awards contest, which recognizes excellence in children's literature, have spoken, and Baking with Friends by Charlene Patton and Sharon Davis, Home Baking Association, has won the Purple Dragonfly Children's Book Award in the children's cookbook category.  


"We want to help parents give their children only the best in reading excellence. Geared toward books for children between the ages of four and 10, the Purple Dragonfly Book Awards are designed to bring families together with great children's literature, and a Purple Dragonfly seal on a book's cover lets parents choose new titles for their bookshelves with confidence," explains Linda Radke, president of Five Star Publications, the sponsor of the Dragonfly Book Awards.

Purple Dragonfly Book Awards are divided into 35 distinct subject categories, ranging from books on the environment and cooking to sports and family issues.

This makes the 3rd children's book award the Home Baking Association has been honored with. The Benjamin Franklin Award, the Kansas Book Award, and the Purple Dragonfly Children's Book Award have been presented to authors Charlene Patton and Sharon Davis since the book was released in early 2010.
