You have heard of the YRCA books but have you heard of the Rocky Mountain Book Awards?
The Rocky Mountain Book Award is an Alberta based reader’s choice program. It is for students in Grades 4 to 7 and focusses on excellent Canadian writing. The books appeal to many readers. You can choose from picture books and novels as well as non-fiction.
We currently have 16 of this year’s 20 titles available in our library. Stop by and check one out or perhaps you have already read one. It would be great to hear your reviews and to publish them on the blog!
