Wisconsin author, Mary Reinhart, is honored that her debut children’s book has been recognized by the Mom’s Choice Award. “It’s a distinguished and respected organization, designed to help parents and grandparents make wiser choices about what products they give to their children,” said Reinhart. “The story of The Magical Love Box is based on a small colorful, wooden box I gave my grandson. In this story, a young child goes on a magical journey to discover what is most important for his special box to hold. I hope this book will inspire people of all ages to look for, and experience, the magic of kindness and love.”

She is available for book readings and signings in schools, libraries, churches, non-profit organizations and community centers.

The Mom’s Choice Awards selects the best in family-friendly media, products and services. The MCA evaluation process uses a proprietary methodology in which entries are scored on a number of elements including production quality, design, educational value, entertainment value, originality, appeal and cost.

“Our aim is to introduce families and educators to best-in-class products and services,” said Dawn Matheson, Executive Director of the Mom’s Choice Awards. “We have a passion to help families grow emotionally, physically and spiritually. Parents and educators know that products and services bearing our seal of approval are high-quality and also a great value. The MCA evaluation program is designed to incorporate the expertise of scientists, physicians and other specialists; but we also engage parents, children, educators, and caregivers because they are experts in knowing what is best for their families.”

With the evaluation now complete, the testing samples of The Magical Love Box will be donated to schools, libraries, hospitals and nonprofit organizations.
