Students and Teachers Love Reading The Willows!
Here’s what some have to say…
“My two favourite books in the whole wide world are Willow books! Rain Shadow and The Last Train are the first books I finished all the way.” Mahika, Grade 7 student
“I love the Willow Awards because it introduces me to new books that I love.” Seyruq, Grade 4 student
“I like reading the Willow books because the books are interesting and some of them are based on a true story.” Kenzee, Grade 4 student
“I love the Willow Awards books because they are cool books to read.” Hayley, Grade 4 student
“Having our Teacher Librarian share the Willow Awards books with my class has enriched the language experiences for my Grade 2 students immeasurably. They love the reading response activities that each book lends itself to. I can see a love of quality Canadian literature developing in each and every one of the children!” Lori Flaman-Drumm, Grade 2 Teacher
“The Willows provide a unique experience to engage with students in literature in a variety of ways. I use the nominated Shining Willow books each year to facilitate persuasive writing lessons and the product that results because of the students’ passion for these books is incredible. Their opinion counts as they get to vote and that automatically engages them in a way that is virtually irreplaceable! ” Cassandra Rieger, Grade 2/3 Teacher
