Forget video games and television, these brothers have been spending much of their free time reading books.

Chancellor School students Gavin and Korbin have taken up the challenge to read 150 nominated Forest of Reading books by December 31, 2017.

“We decided to take up the challenge because we like to read and we like challenges. We also got to spend some quality time reading with each other, said Gavin and Korbin.

The Forest of Reading is a bilingual reading program for students that aims to promote the love of reading a good book.

Grade 6 student Gavin, and brother Korbin who is in grade 2, have both read more than 150 books. 

“They borrowed books from Chancellor’s school library and the WPL library.  It is a great collaboration between the boys’ family and libraries to promote the love of reading and supporting literacy,” shared teacher librarian, Vivianne Fogarty.

Through the competition, the boys love of reading grew. It seems picking a favourite book is proving more difficult than the actual challenge itself.

“I liked them all. They were all such good books, that it’s hard to choose a favourite. It was all good,” said Gavin.


All students who complete the challenge will be entered into a draw to receive a free set of 10 books for themselves and another 10 books for their school or library.

“The best part would be winning the new set of books. It was good bonding time with my brother, Gavin,” said Korbin.
