From Sea to Sea to Sea- Indigenous Children's books collection was compiled by IBBY (the International Board on Books for Young People).
From board books and picture books for younger kids to non-fiction and graphic novels for older readers, this collection is a selection of the best books by Indigenous authors, many illustrated by Indigenous artists, published in Canada up to December 2017. "These titles reflect the diverse First Nations, Metis, and Inuit cultures, languages, perspectives, and experiences from sea to sea to sea. All titles reflect authentic First Nations, Metis, and Inuit voices and offer insight into their distinct histories and current realities of these communities"
The Ottawa Public Library is a portal for discovery and learning and an important contributor to reconciliation with Indigenous peoples in Canada.
