  • Providence-Fall River-Warwick, RI-MA (1888PressRelease) September 16, 2022 - Readers’ Favorite awarded a Gold Medal in the Children – General Category to The Power of Kindness Through the Eyes of Children by Ruth Maille, as well as the Illustration Award in the Fiction – General Category for Ruth Maille’s The Power of Gratitude Unlocking Hidden Treasures. Ruth Maille’s two Readers’ Favorite Awards are the latest in a long list of prestigious accolades.

    The Readers’ Favorite International Book Award Contest featured thousands of contestants from over a dozen countries, ranging from new independent authors to New York Times bestsellers and celebrities. Readers’ Favorite is a prestigious award which has earned the respect of renowned publishers like Random House, Simon & Shuster, and HarperCollins. “When the right books are picked as winner, we pay attention,” says Karen A., Editor for Penguin Random House.

    This is a tremendous honor for Ruth Maille, a licensed family daycare provider, preschool teacher, and parent-relationship coach from Bristol, Rhode Island. She started writing her book series, The Power Of…, during the pandemic. In the early days of COVID-19–related lockdowns, Ruth sat down on a Zoom call with the children she has devoted her career to for over three decades. When she asked them what their plans were for the weekend, she was devasted to see them looking so glum. One of them answered, “We can’t do anything! Corona is out there!”

    Always the glass-half-full type, Ruth decided to write the first installment of her book series, The Power of Positivity: The ABCs of a Pandemic, an ode to the heroes of the pandemic which inspired her young readers to look at the bright side. The book was translated into Spanish and inspired an activity book and a coloring book.

    Thanks to the success of her debut, Ruth was able to write two more books in the series, The Power of Kindness and The Power of Gratitude, to highlight traits that will help tomorrow’s generation tackle life’s challenges with a smile and a can-do attitude. The fourth installment in the series, The Power of Empathy, will be released in October 2022.

    Ruth is available for media inquiries. She can discuss her successful book series, her career as a pre-school teacher and daycare provider which spans three decades, and her practice as a certified parent-relationship coach.
