BOSTON, MA (April 2, 2012) - Pauline Books & Media is excited to announce that Shine: Choices to Make God Smile (2011), authored by Genny Monchamp and illustrated by Karol Kaminski, has been selected by The Christopher's, Inc. to receive a 2012 Christopher Award.

Shine brings the scriptural fruits of the Holy Spirit as contained in Galatians 5 to daily life, helping children ages 4-7 build the confidence they need to make choices infused with Christian character.

Featured among the 2012 "Books for Young People" award category, Shine is praised for its ability to "demonstrate fun and simple ways to build character." The Christopher Awards, established in 1949, annually honor writers, producers, directors, and illustrators whose works promote the "highest values of the human spirit." This year's award winners are celebrated for a multicultural breadth that illuminates "life-changing acts of compassion and the inherent dignity of every human being."
