MacLachlan students are active participants in The Forrest of Reading, Canada's largest recreational reading program. This initiative of the Ontario Library Association offers 8 reading levels to encourage the love of reading in people of all ages. The Forrest helps celebrate Canadian books, authors, publishers and illustrators. More than 250,000 Canadian students are engaged annually.
Our school librarian, Mrs. Brezina, arranged for Blue Spruce nominated author Kari-Lynn Winters to come to the school where she spoke to the K-2 students who are currently reading the Blue Spruce books. Her nominated book this year is called FrenchToast. Kari-Lynn gave an enjoyable and interactive presentation to our young readers and signed books afterwards for those who had pre-purchased.
