I have been on road trip and was working as I travelled from Saskatoon to Yellowknife. Reading the Willow Award nominated books is one of the pleasures of my job. The Willow books are a juried set of books for Saskatchewan students to read and vote for their favourite. I will highlight the different categories through separate posts:
Shining Willows – picture books suitable for students in K- grade 3.
Diamond Willows – early chapter books suitable for students in grades 4-6 .
Snow Willows – more extensive and adult themed books suitable for students in grades 7-9.
