What a Waste! Where Does Garbage Go?, published by Annick Press, has been nominated for the Ontario Library Association's 2018 Forest of Reading Program in the Silver Birch Non-fiction category.
This a children's choice award. Kids across Ontario read the nominated books over the next few months, and in the spring, they vote for their favourites. Just being nominated means that thousands of kids are going to read your book - and that's what the job's all about!
And that's not all the news today. Both What a Waste! and Inside Your Insides: A Guide to the Microbes That Call You Home (Kids Can Press) are on the long list for the 2018 AAAS/Subaru SB&F award in the middle grade category. The finalists in each category will be announced in the November 2017 issue of Science Books & Films magazine, and the winning books will be announced at the 2018 meeting of the American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS) in Austin, Texas, in February.
