The 18th BC Chocolate Lily Young Readers’ Choice awards encourages grade school students to read some of the best fiction written/illustrated by British Columbia’s authors and illustrators and promotes literacy.  Because reading and writing are intertwined, good readers are generally good writers.  “Read, read, read’, is the advice given by many authors. Students read the nominated titles and vote for their favourite book in three categories:

  • Picture books (Kindergarten to Grade 4)
  • Chapter Books/Early Novels (Grades 2 – 4)
  • Novels (Grades 4 – 7)

 May 1st is the deadline to vote!  Come visit the library to find out more about taking part in Chocolate Lily  Click here to see the nominated titles.
