Ann Morris, an author and a promoter of learning, receives the prestigious award of a Mom’s Choice Silver Award Honoring Excellence for her book Surprise in Auntie's Garden! / ¡Sorpresa en el jardín de la tía! The book is available in both English and Spanish.
Surprise in Auntie’s Garden! is written for kids’ ages 5 to 8, illustrated by Heather Varkarotas, and published by Mascot Books. Morris’ second pair of bilingual books, Surprise in Auntie's Garden! / ¡Sorpresa en el jardín de la tía! is about a child’s adventure (her niece Erin) in the author’s flower garden and the surprise they found there.
On DBR Books Blog, the author had once expressed that she writes “children's books in English as well as in Spanish, hoping to encourage not only children learning to read, but to encourage other language learners to be challenged likewise.” Morris once worked with Iowa Workforce Development as a bilingual representative and Coordinator for the New Iowan Center, and several other community agencies that serve many new cultures represented in the United States.
Morris’ first pair of bilingual books is titled Mommy and Mikel Go for a Walk / Mikel y Mami dan un paseo.
