Books Talk / Blabla livres programs at Beaverbrook


This summer at the Beaverbrook Branch we learned all about your favourite books! During our Books Talk/ Blabla livres programs, kids and families shared with us their reviews and ratings of books they had read. Staff then helped kids and their parents/caregivers to find new titles. Below are some book reviews and ratings that were completed by kids and families this summer. Thanks for participating in this new program! / Cet été, à la succursale Beaverbrook, nous avons tout appris sur vos livres préférés! Au cours de nos programmes Books Talk / Blabla livres, les enfants et les familles ont partagé avec nous leurs commentaires et leurs critiques des livres qu'ils avaient lus. Le personnel a ensuite aidé les enfants et leurs parents / gardiens à trouver de nouveaux livres. Vous trouverez ci-dessous des exemples de critiques qui ont été complétées par les enfants et/ou les familles cet été. Merci d'avoir participé à ce nouveau programme!
