Nappa Award WinnersThe National Parenting Publications Awards for Parenting Resources showcase the best in books, CDs, baby gear and innovative products that help make parenting easier and more fun.  Meet the Parenting Resources judges.

In 2008, the National Parenting Publications Awards (NAPPA) celebrates a decade of highlighting top parenting products. This year, NAPPA’s team of expert judges and family testers noticed several new trends:
  • an increase in organic and hypoallergenic products
  • many excellent self-published parenting books
  • a shift in products aimed at helping parents raise genius babies to ones promoting more playfulness and emotional development.
After evaluating hundreds of outstanding submissions, the NAPPA team selected the following products as the cream of the crop.

They were chosen for their design, safety, convenience and overall quality and usefulness.
