2021 Forest of Reading® nominees announced

Yesterday, the Ontario Library Association announced its 2021 nominated titles for the Forest of Reading book award programs.  For months, teachers and librarians on selection committees have been reading submitted books by Canadian creators to compile these exceptional lists from which young readers will select winners next spring. With ninety titles nominated, I've broken them down into three posts on CanLit for LittleCanadians Awards page (links provided below) or you can visit the Ontario Library Association's Forest of Reading page with its nominees. Also, check out how to register for this fabulous reading program. All young readers are welcome. Just select the right program for your young readers.  

Congratulations to all nominees

and

Happy reading to Forest of Reading participants!
