Finders Keepers?: A True Story

Front Cover
Atman Press, 2003 - Juvenile Nonfiction - 31 pages
2005 Mom's Choice Award in the Children's Educational Picture Book category. Winner of Outstanding Books of the Year for the Independent Publisher Book Award and Winner of the most Inspirational to Youth Book Category Award. Benjamin Franklin Silver Award for Best Multicultural Book of the Year. Winner of The National Parenting Center Seal of Approval. The charming true story set in India is about a boy who found the author's wallet and could not understand why he should be rewarded for returning to the author what was his. The concept of accepting a reward for doing the right thing made no sense to him! The delightful illustrations take children on a picturesque, fun-filled journey through the exotic land. Though the setting is in India, the message is timeless and universal. The book emphasizes values that parents will want to pass on to their children and also provides an excellent opportunity to understand cultural differences and underlying similarities in our diverse world.
