Festival of Trees Winners!

Last week on May 15 and 16, the Harbourfront Centre was making the most of the gorgeous, sunny weather at its annual Festival of Trees event. The Festival of Trees celebrates the winners of the Forest of Reading awards with readings, book signings, workshops, and all sorts of entertainment. It's attended by thousands of students, who are themselves responsible for voting for the winning books.

We're proud to announce that 50 Underwear Questions, by Tanya Lloyd Kyi and Ross Kinnaird, was selected as an Honor Book for the Silver Birch Non-Fiction Award. Another book in the series, 50 Poisonous Questions, recently won the Hackmatack Children's Choice Book Award, which prompted Ross to draw this (probably venomous) snake wiggling with glee:

Check out the full list of Forest of Reading award winners on their website or on the Canadian Children's Book Centre website. It's the perfect place to put together a kid-approved summer reading list!
