The World Book Awards Selection Committee has announced that Classroom Times: Charactoon and Rhymes by Dr. Donald R. Stoltz has won top honors at the 2012 World Book Awards. Classroom Times has been named Best Children’s Book in this year’s competition.

What do you get when you cross a character with a cartoon? You get the fun and beautifully illustrated new children’s book Classroom Times: Charactoons and Rhymes.

The book features 120 clever verses about everyday objects that are found everywhere you look, each illustrated by a unique, colorful “charactoon” – a cross between a character and a cartoon. These charming characters are brought to life by Dr. Don, a retired physician, who has written many children’s books as well as books on American illustrators such as Norman Rockwell. This entertaining book for all ages will educate, amuse and surprise with its stunning content.

Congratulations to Dr. Donald R. Stoltz on this wonderful award.
