Having been rigorously evaluated by a panel of MCA evaluators, Heaven’t You Heard?, Crisanta Knight: The Severance Game, Crisanta Knight: Inherent Fate, and Crisanta Knight: The Liar, The Witch, & The Wormhole have been named among the best in family-friendly media, products, and services by the Mom’s Choice Awards®. All four books have been honored with Gold Award standing, and join Crisanta Knight: Protagonist Bound in obtaining the Mom’s Choice Awards® Excellence Seal of Approval.
The MCA evaluation process uses a propriety methodology in which entries are scored on a number of elements including production quality, design, educational value, entertainment value, originality, appeal, and cost.
To be considered for an award, each entrant submits five (5) identical samples for testing. Entries are matched to evaluators in the MCA database. Evaluators are bound by a strict code of ethics not only to ensure objectivity, but also to ensure that the evaluation is free from manufacturer influence. The five evaluations are submitted to the MCA Executive Committee for final review and approval.
With the evaluation now complete, the testing samples of all four books submitted to the awards will be donated to schools, libraries, hospitals, and nonprofit organizations.
“Our aim to introduce families and educators to best-in-class products and services,” explains 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.”
