Silver Birch Nomination for Cammie

Today, the exciting news came that Cammie Takes Flight has been nominated for a 2018 Silver Birch Award.. I can’t begin to put into words what this means to me to know that Cammie will be read by thousands of children in grades 3-6. Congratulations to all the other nominees. So great to know that Cammie is in such excellent company.

This link HERE will take you to the list of the other nominees.

I’ll post a bit later about this wonderful reading program called the Forest of Reading which is run by the Ontario Library Association (OLA), and what it’s all about. Right now, I’m going to try and get my head out of the clouds.

This is a very good thing!

    No need to take your head out of the clouds this quickly…enjoy the feeling for a bit! ~ Congrats ~


  5. Head in the clouds is a perfectly legitimate response! I knew Shari’s book had been nominated but didn’t realize yours was until I watched the video announcement. That’s really special! Huge congratulations!


    • You know, Carol. I had it in my mind that Shari’s book would be on the list. I don’t know why. Perhaps I’m becoming physic. I’m SO happy for Shari! So nice to see a familiar name on the list.
