Yellow Cedar Book Talks: It Began With a Page

January 22, 2021

The Boreal Forest: A Year in the World’s Largest Land Biome, has been nominated for a Yellow Cedar Award in the 2021 Forest of Reading! I am both thrilled and honoured to be in such great company, so I’ve created a series of video book talks to celebrate the work of my fellow nonfiction kidlit authors and – hopefully – to inspire readers like you to discover their work. 

Today, we’re discussing It Began With a Page: How Gyo Fujikawa Drew the Way, by Kyo Maclear, illustrated by Julie Morstad. Enjoy!


The Forest of Reading is a children’s choice award program that’s open to schools, libraries, and individual families. For more information on how to participate, visit the Registration page.
