The Maman Dion Foundation, Founded By Celine Dion's Mother, Chooses Children's Book Author, Dr Nicole, As One Of Top 10 Quebec Women

Dr. Nicole is a best-selling author, based in Quebec, who writes children's books that educate, inspire and teach valuable life lessons

    WILMINGTON, NC, September 03, 2016 /24-7PressRelease/ -- Multi-award winning Canadian children's book author Dr. Nicole has been chosen as one of Quebec's Top 10 Women by the Maman Dion Foundation to celebrate the 10th anniversary of the Foundation. The Maman Dion Foundation is an educational foundation that provides support to underprivileged children in the form of clothing, eyewear and school supplies. The founder of the organization is Therese Tanguay-Dion, known as Maman Dion, a television personality and the mother of Celine Dion.

In the traditions of Walt Disney and Dr. Seuss, Dr. Nicole breathes life into inanimate objects and wildly entertaining characters that engage children in powerful ways. Through parent/child interaction, her works develop a love for reading while helping children develop the most important skill of all - critical thinking. If a child can master the art of critical thinking, nearly everything else falls into place. Sadly, critical thinking is not always taught to young children.

"For three years my editor and I have given children's books to Celine Dion's mother," Dr. Nicole stated. "We support Maman Dion's Foundation to help poor children be well prepared to go to school and I am very proud to support Maman Dion's mission. To celebrate the 10th anniversary of her Foundation, she will honored 10 women from Quebec who dedicate their lives to helping children and their families. When I was informed that Maman Dion invited me as one of the top 10 Quebec women, I was very happy. It gives me a boost to continue my children's book author career and to help me do my best to influence their lives in a positive manner."

Dr. Nicole's books have won numerous awards. 'Parents For Sale', was a Bronze Medal winner in the 2015 Reader's Favorite International Book Awards Contest in the Children - Animals category.
