I Read Canadian

The second annual I Read Canadian Day is on February 17th. Hey, that’s tomorrow! 

For those of you who have not heard of it until now I read Canadian Day is a nationwide celebration of Canadian books for young people.  Kids, teens and even adults are encouraged to read a Canadian book for 15 minutes on that day. Quite simply, it’s a day to shine a light on all the wonderful kids’ books in Canada–and there are SO many of them. 

BTW– you are allowed to read for longer than 15 minutes if you want!

On February 17th, I’ll be reading from Lindsay Carmicheal’s wonderful non-fiction picture book, The Boreal Forest and illustrated by the brilliant Josee Bisaillon, but there are plenty more books to choose from. I’m sure you won’t have any problem finding one.

Happy I Read Canadian Day!

If you’d like to give a shout-out to Canadian children’s book (or books) please feel free to in the comment section of my blog.
