BroadStreet Publishing book chosen as a 2018
ECPA Christian Book Award® Finalist

(Minneapolis, MN) April 12, 2018— BroadStreet Publishing is excited to announce that their children’s book, Farmer Herman and the Flooding Barn, has been chosen as a finalist in the 2018 ECPA Christian Book Awards for the children’s category:

Farmer Herman and the Flooding Barn by Jason Weber is a whimsical children’s book based on the true story of a farmer who called upon 344 friends and neighbors to help lift his flooding barn to safety. The story is used as an analogy that describes the desperate need for reform in foster care and the enormous potential to make a difference if we all work together.

Jason Weber, National Director of Foster Care Initiatives for CAFO (Christian Alliance for Orphans), wrote this book not only to raise awareness for the children in foster care, but to make a statement that anything is possible when you rally enough caring people in your community. The book further exemplifies this concept by using 344 people of all ages, each engaged in foster care in varying ways, to illustrate the book (a list of all of the illustrators and their artwork is included at the end).
