Literary Classics is pleased to announce that the book Walter’s Way, by Walter Scherr, has been selected to receive the Literary Classics Seal of Approval.  The CLC Seal of Approval is a designation reserved for those books which uphold the rigorous criteria set forth by the Literary Classics review committee, a team comprised of individuals with backgrounds in publishing, editing, writing, illustration and graphic design.

Walter Scherr grew up in Queens, New York during the depression.  He, along with the buddies he'd known since childhood, couldn't wait to enlist in the army as part of their patriotic duty.  But after taking the required physical Walter was diagnosed with Tuberculosis, a life-threatening and highly contagious illness.  He spent the next seven years in quarantine fighting the dreaded disease while his friends were off fighting in the war.  After finally being released with a clean bill of health he went on to become a successful and highly influential business man.  His road to success was riddled with speed bumps and detours.  But with a strong sense of purpose, high ideals, and a willingness to learn, he had a tremendous impact in the U.S. and abroad, making positive changes that are still causing ripples in how businesses operate today.  This a compelling story that will encourage and inspire readers of all ages.  Walter's Way is highly recommended and has earned the Literary Classics Seal of Approval.

Literary Classics, an organization dedicated to furthering excellence in literature for young readers, takes great pride in its role to help promote classic literature which appeals to youth while educating and encouraging positive values in the impressionable young minds of future generations.   To learn more about Literary Classics, you may visit their website at www.clcawards.org or www.childrensliteraryclassics.com
