I think the work this group did on the Haki and the Rule of Law Book found a way to communicate with children about how Law works. From the notes from history like the Magna Carta to how we run our cities and classrooms according to the rule of law-- all to maintain order and justice is awesome.

As an ex parole officer I can only say how wonderful it would have been for the men I monitored to have had in their youth a better understanding of how Law came to be, how it helps us run as a society, and how the justice system works. Maybe I'd have had a few men better prepared to re-enter into society.

Thank you HBA for your wonderful work.

I have worked with Home Based Arts in several capacities, including researching and helping write some of their learning activities books. I have heard nothing but compliments on how well the books have been received, by both the students and their teachers, and feel proud to have been a part of the process. At this time HBA has distributed over 400,000 books to children. Many of them deal with history, a passion of mine, and something I feel is important to pass on to future generations. I believe that HBA's books make learning easy and fun and proves that learning can be fun!

I have worked in the non profit world for decades, and was executive director of a major community center. We relied heavily on volunteers and collaboration with other non profits.
The education materials by Children's Historical Publishing for primary grade school children were a wonderful addition to our day care and after school care centers.
Their generous contributions were gratefully received.

I've had the opportunity to work with HBA and I think the books are very informative and serve as a positive in teaching history to our children. HBA books could serve as a supplement in our educational system.

I would like to submit the strongest nomination possible for Home Based Arts USA (EIN 31-1434722).

HBA creates learning activity books on a variety of subjects, from “The Law” to the “Great Dayton Flood of 1913,” from “Money Talks” to “Aerospace,” from tolerance to friendships, the series is constantly expanding beyond the current 15 books.
Together with the free books for grade school students comes the teacher guide to help facilitate the subject matter. Endorsed by teachers and schools statewide, HBA has already distributed in excess of 400,000 books.

The executive director, Joyce Reid Kasprzak, works tirelessly soliciting and selling potential sponsors on the value of these books, beloved by the children and treasured by teachers. HBA would be a most deserving winner and would be able to expand the lineup of these fabulous teaching books.

I have helped this organization get feedback on one of the their books that was donated to schools across the state of OH. The appreciation and feedback from the Curriculum Directors and Teachers has been outstanding, and the students' comprehension of the subject matter was significantly improved as a result of this book. I am very impressed with the mission and accomplishments of Home Based Arts and hope that they can continue with their great work.

This organization is committed to teaching children to read and become aware of historic people in a way they may understand. They donate books to schools and are very active in the community writing about topics such as The Tuskegee Airman, Paul L Dunbar and others.
