Posted on May 30th, 2014 by pajamapress
Pajama Press is proud to announce that No Shelter Here: Making the World a Kinder Place for Dogs by Rob Laidlaw has won the 2013/2014 Hackmatack Children’s Choice Book Award for English Non-Fiction.
No Shelter Here has proven to be a popular children’s choice book; it has already won the 2013 Forest of Reading Silver Birch Non-Fiction Award and is nominated for the 2014/2015 Pennsylvania Young Readers’ Choice Award.
The Hackmatack Children’s Choice Award is a reading program that encourages a love of reading among children in grades 4–6 in Canada’s Atlantic provinces. Participating students choose their favourite books from among a list of 10 in each category: English Fiction, English Non-Fiction, French Fiction, and French Non-Fiction. You can read about this year’s other three winners here.
Cat Champions: Caring for our Feline Friends is the companion book to No Shelter Here. It is already nominated for next year’s award program, and we look forward to sharing it with students in Atlantic Canada in the 2014–2015 school year.
Congratulations, Rob, and congratulations to all of the students who read and voted this year!
