This week the Red Cedar nominees will be released for check out to the intermediate students. I asked the teachers if they would like to read them first, and many of them volunteered.
If you hover over the Red Cedar page at the top of the blog, you will see a list book titles. F is for fiction, and NF is for nonfiction. Click on one of this titles and and you will find a review of the book written by one of our teachers. So far Mr. Brown, Mrs. March and I have submitted our reviews. Keep your eyes out for more in the weeks to come!
We would love to hear what you think of these books, too. Please leave your comments at the bottom of the book’s page and/or come see Mrs. Araujo about how to post your review.
Students have until April to read the books and then they will vote for their favourites!
The votes are in! The Canadian Picture Book of the Year is Small Saul by Ashley Spires!
