We are so excited to launch our Forest of Reading program at Wilshire Elementary School! The Forest of Reading is Canada’s largest recreational reading program. With over a quarter of a million readers taking part every year, young readers have the unique opportunity to vote on the best nominated book for their age group. There are six school aged programs in the Forest of Reading, a project of the Ontario Library Association, each planned for a different age group. All are designed to promote reading for enjoyment, to increase awareness of quality Canadian literature, to enhance student powers of discrimination and skill in evaluating books, and to provide opportunities to engage in discussions about books at school or at home.
Our school is registered to participate in 3 Forest of Reading programs:
The Blue Spruce Award™
The Silver Birch Award®
The Red Maple Award™
