Los Angeles, CA (April 12, 2012)— Corwin is pleased to announce that Preparing Children for Success in School and Life: 20 Ways to Increase Your Child’s Brain Power by Marcia L. Tate has been named a finalist for the ForeWord Reviews 2011 Book of the Year Award in the parenting books category. The finalists represent excellence in independent publishing.
“Preparing Children for Success in School and Life is the first book Corwin has published that is written specifically for parents. Marcia’s training with teachers and parents has been amazing, so publishing a parenting book with her was something we were eager to try,” said Mike Soules, president of Corwin. “It is very gratifying to have our first parenting book be named a finalist for a ForeWord award.”
Preparing Children for Success in School and Life presents brain-compatible strategies for guiding children toward personal, academic, and career success. Marcia Tate is an educational consultant, author, mother, and grandmother who draws on her 30+ years of education experience with thousands of children to teach parents how everyday activities such as story-telling, music, drawing and writing can help children be successful.

Representing more than 700 publishers, the finalists were selected from 1200 entries in 60 genre categories. Award winners are chosen by librarians and booksellers who are on the front lines, working everyday with patrons and customers.
