I am thrilled and honoured to announce that “Don’t Touch That Toad and Other Strange Things Adults Tell You” has been recognized with two more awards this year!
Late last year I learned that it would be nominated for a Forest of Reading Award, and in May this year, I found out that it won that award:2012 Forest of Reading winners.
The book was also one of the Hackmatack winners announced in April this year: 2012 Hackmatack winners.
Thank you all so much for reading my book!

I am thrilled and honoured to announce that “Don’t Touch That Toad and Other Strange Things Adults Tell You” has been nominated for a Forest of Reading Award! The book has been nominated in the Silver Birch non-fiction category, and you can take a look at the list of nominees right here.
The Silver Birch® Award is comprised of three separate lists of Fiction, Non-Fiction, and an Express list that is made up of both Fiction and Non-Fiction, geared to the more reluctant reader. The Silver Birch® program is meant for readers aged 8 to 12, from Grades 3-6, with the Express list focusing on the lower grade level and the Fiction and Non-Fiction focusing on the Grade 5 and 6 readers.
This nomination holds a very special meaning to me as all Forest of Reading awards are voted on by young readers in Ontario!
