This week, the official winners of Forest of Reading® will be announced in Toronto at the Festival of Trees. It’s like a rock concert for authors! Thousands of children will descend upon the festival, meet authors, listen to them speak, get books signed…and be in the audience as the awards are announced. It’s a big day for Canadian Children’s authors and illustrators.
We had our own voting night in April. Children who participated in the program at our library read books from December to April, and then voted on their favourites. And on voting night, they made their decisions. We sent off our votes to Toronto, and we’ve waited for the last few weeks to see who would be the official winners. Will we have picked the same winners overall? Only time will tell!
