Karin Piper's debut book, CHARTER SCHOOLS: The Ultimate Handbook for Parents, awarded "2009 finalist in best books for parenting and education," by USA Book News.

PR9.NET December 01, 2009 - Parker, CO - Charter Schools: The Ultimate Handbook for Parents, by charter school parent and Parker resident, Karin Piper, was awarded "2009 finalist in best books for parenting and education," by USA Book News just weeks after its release.
The Ultimate Handbook is the first book about charter schools written specifically for parents – and is already in high-demand. The book nearly sold out on Amazon.com less than two weeks after its release.

"Parents today are savvy consumers when setting out to find a school for their children," says Karin Piper. "Charter schools are a relevant topic and families everywhere want to learn more about what they are, what to expect, and if they should consider a charter school for their child. As a parent who has gone through this process I was surprised by the lack of published resources that answer real questions that parents have about these innovative public schools. The Ultimate Handbook was designed to fill this need."

Piper will be accompanied by the Colorado League of Charter Schools on a book signing tour at various family friendly events, including: the annual Colorado Charter Schools Conference, Denver Baby and Kidz Expo, The Radio Disney sponsored All About Kids Expo, and several charter schools around the state.
Piper's voice as a parent and advocate for school choice has quickly become familiar in the education world through frequently published articles, blogs, and active community involvement.

Charter Schools: The Ultimate Handbook for Parents is a timely success with national attention placing the spotlight on such schools. There are more than 4,900 public charter schools in the United States, serving nearly 2 million children, with an estimated half million children on wait lists for charter school enrollment.
