Forest of Reading
The Forest of Reading is a compilation of seven reading programs divided by grade range. The Forest celebrates Canadian works and promotes a love of reading by all ages. The Terry James Resource Centre encourages all elementary and secondary schools within the Upper Grand School Board to participate in the program.
To support participating schools we offer bulk purchasing to secure the best pricing for our schools. All pre-ordered books will be cataloged and shipped directly to the school.
TJRC manages a blog for students to provide input and feedback on the titles they are reading. Links to the Blog can be found on UG2Go.
