Forest of Reading​ 

The Woodlands' Forest of Reading Club

  • At The Woodlands, all students are welcome to join our Forest of Reading Book Club, and read titles nominated for the "Red Maple" and "White Pine" awards.
  • Red Maple" books have greater appeal to grade 7-8 students, while "White Pine" books are more appropriate for readers in grades 9-12.
  • There are 10 books in each category. If students read a minimum of five nominated books within a category, they are able to vote to determine who wins the award.
