As if a book deal wasn't good enough, I got an email from Highlights this morning with this news:
"Congratulations! Candy Secrets won the 2011 Distinguished Achievement Award for Excellence in Educational Publishing in the following category: Periodicals -- How-To-Feature, K-5"
People are really interested in candy experiments. Which, since candy experiments are a great way to teach science while pouring candy down the drain, is no surprise.
If you're interested, you can see the full list of awards at the AEP website.
