Red Cedar Book Award Club
The Red Cedar is British Columbia’s Young Reader’s Choice book award. Every year, thousands of children between grades 4 and 7 from across the province are invited to read books from the nominated lists of non-fiction and fiction titles and vote for their favourite.
The purpose of the program is threefold:
1. To enrich and broaden students’ reading experiences,
2. To promote literacy through the reading of quality Canadian literature
3. To encourage students’ thoughtful evaluation of these reading materials.
Students set goals to read at least 5 or more books in one genre or both if they choose. By reading at least 5 books they are eligible to vote for their favourite book at the end of April.
In the Red Cedar Club students learn how to evaluate both fiction/non-fiction books, how to create interesting “book sells” or reviews to post on the website and share their thoughts or recommendations with other students, write to their favourite authors and many other challenging book related activities.
