I got some great news today!
Every year, the Ontario Library Association (OLA) has a wonderful literacy program called The Forest of Reading where young readers from across the province read a selection of books and vote for their favourite. This culminates into a massive celebration at Harbourfront in Toronto in May where thousand of kids come and meet the authors they’ve read. Since 2010, Forest of Reading also has French categories. In the past, I’ve had the pleasure of having two of my books, Tous les œufs dans le même panier and Coup de théâtre à Stratford, make the cut and be finalists for this award.
Today, I got the news that not one but TWO of my new releases are in the running! Fatima et les voleurs de clémentines is a finalist for the Prix Tamarac Express and Chapeau Charlotte! is in the running for the brand new picture book award, Prix Peuplier.
If you’d like more information about the Forest of Reading program, or if you’d like to have your class join in, click here!
Thank you, Forest of Reading selection committee! Now, all we can do is read and… knock on wood! 😉
