Two Bilingual Children's Books By Quebec Children's Book Author Dr Nicole Receive Story Monsters Approval Seal

Dr. Nicole is a best-selling author, based in Quebec, who writes children’s books that educate, inspire and teach valuable life lessons

Multi-award winning Canadian children’s book author Dr. Nicole has announced that two of her bilingual picture children's books, 'Strike At Charles' Farm/Grève à la ferme de Charles' and 'Are You Eating My Lunch?/Manges-tu mon lunch?' have received the Story Monster Approved seals.

In the traditions of Walt Disney and Dr. Seuss, Dr. Nicole breathes life into inanimate objects and wildly entertaining characters that engage children in powerful ways. Through parent/child interaction, her works develop a love for reading while helping children develop the most important skill of all - critical thinking. If a child can master the art of critical thinking, nearly everything else falls into place. Sadly, critical thinking is not always taught to young children.

"I am truly grateful and honored for the Story Monster Approved seals," Dr. Nicole stated. "Being judged by children for my books makes me proud. Last year, my chapter book, 'Parents for Sale', received this honor. It motivated me to produce my two bilingual picture books. My true intentions regarding being an author are to inspire children to read, to set their imaginations free and to encourage good decision making regarding health, safety and moral responsibility. Writing children’s books is a way for me giving back and being a positive resource to the community. It is a way that I can positively express myself while having some fun and at the same time - being a positive role model for both children and parents. These are few small steps to make the world a better place. I hope that my books inspire children to set their minds free and work to make the world a better place."

As stated on the StoryMonsters.com website, "Kids know when they see the Story Monsters Approved! patch it means children their own age enjoyed the book and are recommending they read it, too. How do they know that? Because after books pass the first round of judging by industry experts, the books are then judged by a panel of youth judges who must also endorse the books before they can receive the official seal of approval."

Dr. Nicole’s books have won numerous awards. 'Parents For Sale', was a Bronze Medal winner in the 2015 Reader's Favorite International Book Awards Contest in the Children - Animals category. Other awards include 2015 Purple Dragonfly Books Award: Chapters Book: Honorable Mention; 2015 New York Book Festival: Children’s Book: Honorable Mention and the 2015 Hollywood Book Festival: Children’s Book: Honorable Mention. 'Parents For Sale' is Story Monster Approved, and has received a 5 Star rating from Readers’ Favorite. In addition to the Mom's Choice Award, 'Strike At Charles' Farm /Grève à la ferme de Charles’ was named a runner-up in the 2015 Animals, Animals, Animals Book Awards and received an Honorable Mention; 2015 New England Book Festival. 'Are You Eating My Lunch?/Manges-tu mon lunch?' has also received four 5 Star reviews from Readers’ Favorite and took a Mom's Choice Silver Award. Dr Nicole was named as a winner in the "50 Great Writers You Should Be Reading Book Awards" for 2015.

Dr. Nicole has sold over 150,000 books in her career. She is highly regarded for her work with children’s books and a health guide for families. Her goals are to create in children a love for reading and to create interaction and engagement.

Dr. Nicole’s books have received high praise from reviewers. In regards to 'Are You Eating My Lunch?/Manges-tu mon lunch?', Grady Harp stated, "This is another little winner from Dr. Nicole - combining learning with entertainment. Such a fine style of writing she has established – making the reader want more. Highly recommended." In a review for 'Strike At Charles' Farm/Grève à la ferme de Charles’', Harp said, "Not only does Nicole write a fine story with an excellent moral, but she also adds questions about farm animals at the end for children ( and adults ) to learn whether they remember the facts of the story. Highly recommended book – whether you wish to read it in English or French."
