Last night was our Forest of Reading® voting night at the library and what an exciting night it was! We had plenty of voters this year, many who had read all 10 books in their category. They registered with Janet, who handed out the ballots and then the kids went into the voting booths and made their decisions.
There were plenty of tough choices for the kids. For some, it was down to the wire on which books they’d choose as their favourites. But after much thought, the winners in our library were as follows:
Blue Spruce – A Flock of Shoes
Silver Birch Express – Banjo of Destiny
Silver Birch Fiction – That Boy Red
Silver Birch Non-Fiction – Don’t Touch That Toad
Everyone had a great time after the vote, eating cake and looking at their prizes.
Now, we’ll send our tabulations to Toronto, where they’ll be added to those of all the other participating libraries and schools. We’ll wait for the official announcement after May 15th and then let all our readers know which books won. It’s always exciting to see if our readers pick the same winners.
Thanks to Janet for all her voting help and a BIG thanks to everyone who read books this year and came to vote. Great job everyone!
