About the Forest

The Forest of Reading Award Programs empower children and adults to choose the winners by reading and voting for their favorite books. Participants select a program based on their age or grade, and can read all ten titles or just those that interest them. To be eligible to vote in April, readers should read at least five of the ten titles. The program fosters a lifelong love of reading, supports Canadian literature, and puts libraries at the heart of the action with engaging activities.
