Canadian Children’s Book Week 2021


May 2, 2021 00:00 - May 8, 2021 23:59


Across Canada



Theme: Readers Take Flight/Tournée Lire à tout vent

Canadian Children’s Book Week connects Canadian authors and illustrators with children and teens across Canada. Tour participants speak to their audiences about the pleasures of reading and the delights of Canadian children’s books through their presentations and workshops. Meeting authors, illustrators and storytellers can be a turning point in a child’s life, inspiring a lifelong love of reading.

Canadian Children’s Book Week is organized by the Canadian Children’s Book Centre, a national, not-for-profit organization founded in 1976. We are dedicated to encouraging, promoting and supporting the reading, writing, illustrating and publishing of Canadian books for young readers. Our programs, publications, and resources help teachers, librarians, booksellers and parents select the very best for young readers.
