|The Shining Willow Award|
On May 23, at St. Angela's School in Saskatoon, Claire was presented with the 2018-2019 Shining Willow Award for her picture book, Underneath the Sidewalk (Scholastic Canada) -- the book voted most popular by young Saskatchewan readers up to Grade 3.
And just last week, the nominees for British Columbia's 2019-2020 Red Cedar Award were announced -- including Claire's 2018 title, Out of the Ice: How Climate Change is Revealing the Past (Kids Can Press).
And...TA-DAH!... A quick update: Out of the Ice has also been shortlisted for the 2019 Information Book Award given by the Children's Literature Roundtables of Canada. The winner will be announced in November.
