“Receiving the Christopher Award for our first ‘Here’s Hank’ book, ‘Bookmarks Are People Too’, was such a meaningful acknowledgment of our commitment to getting reluctant readers to pick up a book and laugh their way through it.   We believe laughter is the perfect light switch to illuminate a child’s path into literature.   We were honored and grateful to have been chosen and will continue to support the belief that reading and education can lead us all from darkness to light.”  - Henry Winkler and Lin Oliver
