We’re getting ready for another season of Forest of Reading®, and this year, we’re expanding! Our young readers are moving up, and this means we’ll be offering the program from Kindergarten right through Grade 12! It’s going to be exciting.
Beginning in December, we’ll start registrations for each category. Readers will select from 10 nominated books in each reading category, and depending on the level, they’ll be asked to read anywhere from eight to ten books over the course of the next five months. At the end of April, participants will vote on their favourite book in their category. All of our tabulations will be sent to Toronto and collected with other libraries and schools, and the winning authors and illustrators will be given the coveted awards for their books. This is the only award given to Canadian authors and illustrators that is completely chosen by children. Isn’t that great?
Stay tuned for a complete list of nominated books!
