Way to Go, Milo!


Congratulations to my good friend Lisa Umina of Halo Publishing and her buddy Milo for their recognition this week in winning the Christian Christian Small Publisher Book of the Year Award for their tremendous book Milo and the Green Wagon.

At the time this book was released, I said of it, “Milo and the Green Wagon is a true gift for families. This precious story teaches children that they, too, can make a difference in our world by reaching out to people in need; Small efforts can add up to tremendous results! Author Lisa Umina and Milo teach us that there is true joy in giving to others.”  In the time since that review was written, Lisa and Milo have been working hard to educate kids (and their parents and teachers) to the fact that “ACT – Action Changes Things“.

The award won by Milo and the Green Wagon is greatly deserved and a vote of confidence for the message that books can change minds and hearts.  If you don’t already own Milo and the Green Wagon, please consider purchasing this book to share with your favorite child.  You will love it as much as she does!
