For all our young Forest of Reading® participants, there’s only one more month to go. Don’t worry, it’s plenty of time to get enough books read in order to vote (all 10 books in The Blue Spruce™ Award category, and a minimum of 8 books in The Silver Birch™ Award (includes Express) category). We’ll make more of an announcement come voting time, but we have lots of young people reading the selections and crossing them off in our book one by one.
So far, I’d say the Blue Spruce kids are leading the pack with the most books read in our library. We even have five kids who have finished all 10 books and are ready to vote! During this last month, we’ll be a little more lenient about how many books kids can take home. If it means getting more finished in order to qualify, we’re all for it! Keep reading, kids, and start thinking about which book is your favourite this year!
