The Boreal Forest of Reading!

October 19, 2020


The Boreal Forest has been nominated for a YELLOW CEDAR AWARD in the FOREST OF READING.

If you’re not familiar, the Forest of Reading is the largest recreational reading program in Canada. Kids across the country can register to read the nominated books and vote for their favourites – last year, more than 270,000 kids took part. It’s a great way to get kids reading books, thinking about books, and talking about which books they like and why. I am absolutely thrilled that a book I wrote will be included in this process… and also a little embarrassed to admit that I have not personally read ANY of the other books in my category:

Thanks to CBCBooks for this lovely collage of the Yellow Cedar nominees!


So let’s fix that, shall we? 

Kids participating in the Forest of Reading have to read at least 5 of the 10 books in a category to vote. I don’t get to vote – of course! – but I’m still going to read all 9 of the other Yellow Cedar nominees… and I’m going to release a series of videos explaining why I think every one of those books is awesome.

The first video will launch in January – stay tuned for details. And in the meantime, check out the amazing Canadian books nominated in EVERY category of the Forest of Reading!

Thank you, Ontario Library Association, for including The Boreal Forest in this year’s Forest of Reading Program!
