Dear Author/Publisher:

Congratulations. Your book, ‘Classics: How We Can Encourage Children to Read Them’, has placed in the 2015 Eric Hoffer Book Awards. 

. . . .  The email ended with…

Again congratulations on your Eric Hoffer Book Award distinction, and we wish you continued success in the future. The Eric Hoffer Award was created to promote writers, authors, and independent presses. Please consider sending entries in future years.

That’s right! My book Classics: How We Can Encourage Children to Read Them, has received Honourable Mention, in E-Book Nonfiction category at the 2015 Eric Hoffer Awards.

The Eric Hoffer Award for books and short prose honours the memory of the great American philosopher Eric Hoffer by highlighting salient writing, as well as the independent spirit of small publishers. Since its inception, the Eric Hoffer Book Award has become one of the largest international awards for small, academic, and independent presses.

I am honoured to receive such a prestigious award. What touched me even more was the critique of my book on The US Review of Books  website which covers these awards.  The US Review of Books supports the Eric Hoffer Project by publishing the results of the annual Eric Hoffer Award for Books. The Eric Hoffer Award is judged by a separate panel, under direction of the Eric Hoffer Project.

To quote the critiqueClassics: How We Can Encourage Children to Read Them, Fiza Pathan, CreateSpace
We all want (or should want) the kids to read. It expands their minds, as well as their potential creativity, in unrivaled ways, but getting them to read the classics is another task altogether. Pathan, an experienced teacher, understands that individual book tastes varies as much as the books themselves. She tries to build excitement and make her students want to read them. Her guide provides methods for introducing the classics that can be applied to most other books and cover both the classroom and home. Calling upon various multimedia aids, lecture techniques, and old-fashion fun, Pathan’s comprehensive, multi-approach guide is destined to become a classic reference for the classics themselves.

Book description:

With the aid of the various techniques mentioned in this book, I hope to propagate the reading of Classics to everyone . . . every student, parent, and educator.

Through the use of these techniques, parents and educators will be able to introduce students to the rich world of classic literature without the negative feelings that often result when students are exposed to new, more difficult material. The book also focuses on the importance of reading good literature, methods for encouraging students to do so, and the lifelong benefits children will reap from exposure to classic literature.  It is my hope that this book will encourage everyone to make reading the classics a habit rather than a chore. We must do so, for the welfare of the modern generation and those to follow.
