I Read Canadian Day

10/02/2020

This  Feb. 19,  we invite you to participate in the first I READ CANADIAN DAY,  a new, national celebration to recognize Canadian books for youth.  Canada  has a rich collection of wonderful books for children and teens written by authors from across the country,  from picture books to early fiction to graphic novels to nonfiction.  This campaign challenges us to "Read Canadian" silently, aloud, or read to, for 15 minutes, and then to share the experience.  The booklists provided here are a sampling of some of our favourite outstanding Canadian authors, guaranteed to satisfy every reader's taste.
