Chris Earley's latest children's book, Weird Frogs, has been chosen as one of the titles in an Ontario-wide reading contest. The Forest of Reading Program offers many different levels of reading challenges for students; Weird Frogs is part of the Silver Birch Express category for readers in Grades 3-6. In May, the program's Festival of Trees ceremony in Toronto invites students from all over the province to meet the authors of their favourite books as well as attend workshops and activities that promote reading. The festival attracts over 10 000 students making it Canada's largest annual literary event for children. Chris is currently offering free talks to local schools to encourage their readers to learn about frogs and other animals around the world.
