Pajama Press extends its heartfelt congratulations to Rob Laidlaw, whose book Cat Champions: Caring for our Feline Friends has been nominated for the 2014–2015 Red Cedar Book Award.
A young reader’s choice book program for the province of British Columbia, the Red Cedar Book Award encourages thousands of children between grades 4 and 7 to read a shortlist of fiction and non-fiction books, and to vote for their favourites. The 2014–2015 list will be officially launched in November 2014, and the vote will take place in April, 2015.
Author Rob Laidlaw is no stranger to children’s choice reading programs. Cat Champions has also been nominated for Atlantic Canada’s Hackmatack Children’s Choice Award and its companion book, No Shelter Here: Making the World a Kinder Place for Dogs, won the 2013 Ontario Library Association Forest of Reading Silver Birch Non-Fiction Award. No Shelter Here is also nominated for the 2013-2014 Hackmatack Award and the 2014–2015 Pennsylvania Young Reader’s Choice Award.
Pajama Press is honoured to be a part of the Red Cedar program and many others. We salute all those involved in bringing kids together with excellent literature.
