The Mom’s Choice Award’s esteemed panel of judges consists of education, media and other experts as well as parents, children, librarians, performing artists, producers, medical and business professionals, authors, scientists, and others. A sampling of MCA’s panel members includes: Dr. Twila C. Liggett, ten-time Emmy-winner, professor, and founder of PBS’s Reading Rainbow; Julie Aigner-Clark, Creator of Baby Einstein and The Safe Side Project and Catherine Witcher, M.Ed., special needs expert and founder of Precision Education, Inc. MCA judges are bound by a strict code of ethics which ensures expert and objective analysis free from any manufacturer association.
According to MCA Honorary Judge, Tara Paterson, “The Mom’s Choice Awards honors people for their heart and soul and the work they put into their products.” While evaluating The Greatest Dot-to-Dot Super Challenge Series (Books 5-8), MCA judges recognized Kalvitis’s passion for his work. It is this passion that has earned Kalvitis’s books numerous awards, including the Mom’s Choice Award®, as well as legions of fans, young and old, who cannot wait to discover the hidden treasures buried among the many dots spotting The Greatest Dot-to-Dot Super Challenge books. When asked what set Kalvitis’s puzzles apart from the other applicants, one judge explained, "The Greatest Dot-to-Dots are a modern approach to a favorite classic, these complex and artistic puzzles are challenging, fun, and full of exciting twists!"
