Flip’s New York filip

Glad tidings from America this week, with news that Flip has been named in the 2012 Best Children’s Books of the Year by the internationally renowned Bank Street College of Education, in New York. Not only that, but it has been tagged as one of the novels of “outstanding merit” on the list.

The titles are chosen by the children’s book committee at the college in Greenwich Village, Manhattan – a selection panel comprising teachers, librarians, authors, parents and psychologists, with a crop of young readers from across the U.S. evaluating the books as well.

The aim is to provide librarians, teachers and parents with a guide to the best reading for children and teenagers. According to the college’s website, “In choosing books for the annual list, reviewers consider literary quality and excellence of presentation as well as the potential emotional impact of the books on young readers.”
