Canadian Children’s Book Week: Read to Remember

Children’s Book Week in Canada commences today, May 3, and runs until the 10th. Authors, illustrators and storytellers across the country will visit schools, libraries, bookstores and community centres in every province and territory.

The theme of the 2014 Canadian Children’s Book Week is “Read to Remember.” It  is meant to commemorate the 100th anniversary of World War I. “Books can help us to remember WWI, WWII and subsequent wars, books can help us to honour those involved and books can help us to recognize that wars are still happening in other parts of the world today. Our theme guide will focus on books that explore WWI, WWII and subsequent wars Canada has been involved in.”
