It is an honour for us to share the wonderful news: Parenting Right From the Start by Dr. Vanessa Lapointe has won a silver award in the parenting & family category in the 32nd annual IBPA Benjamin Franklin Awards! Celebrating excellence in book editorial and design, the IBPA Benjamin Franklin Awards are sponsored by the Independent Book Publishers Association (IBPA).
Due to restrictions on travel and gatherings related to COVID-19, this year’s IBPA Benjamin Franklin Award ceremony were presented via a virtual “shelter-in-place” program held on the evenings of May 5, 6, 7, and 8. During the special online program, winners were recognized for setting the standards and pace for the publishing industry via category-specific videos.
Selected as an IBPA Benjamin Franklin Award silver winner, Parenting Right From the Start shows how mindful, connection-based parenting is integral to healthy child development. In this follow-up to the bestselling Discipline Without Damage, Dr. Lapointe provides practical, heart-centered advice to parents, helping them to nurture a vital connection to their children and build a firm, caring presence in the early years that their children will lean into for a lifetime.
“It is a shining example of our publishing mission—to publish books that help, heal, and inspire,” said our publisher Maggie Langrick in her acceptance speech during the award ceremony. Watch her speech in the video below.
