Welcome to the TD Canadian Children’s Book Week Site
TD Canadian Children's Book Week 2014
Saturday, May 3 - Saturday, May 10, 2014
Join us in celebrating TD Canadian Children's Book Week and bring the magic of books and reading to children all across Canada!
The next TD Canadian Children’s Book Week touring program will run from Saturday, May 3 to Saturday, May 10, 2014. Twenty-nine Canadian children’s authors, illustrator and storytellers will be visiting schools, libraries, community centres and bookstores across Canada throughout the week.
TD Canadian Children's Book Week is the single most important national event celebrating Canadian children's books and the importance of reading. Close to 35,000 children, teens and adults participate in activities held in every province and territory across the country. Hundreds of schools, public libraries, bookstores and community centres host events as part of this major literary festival.
This site contains valuable information about the history of Book Week; the plans for this year’s touring program; the costs involved in hosting a reading; information about the touring authors, illustrators and storytellers and the presentations they do; contact information for the Book Week Coordinators who are organizing the tours in your province or territory; and information about our popular Book Week materials which can be used to celebrate Canadian books in the classroom, library or at home.
TD Canadian Children's Book Week is organized by the Canadian Children's Book Centre, in partnership with the Storytellers of Canada/Conteurs du Canada, and is made possible through the generous support of our sponsors and funders.
Experience the Magic of Book Week
In 2013, author Jennifer Lanthier visited schools and libraries in Labrador with her daughter, Nicola Lanthier-Rogers, during TD Canadian Children's Book Week. Nicola, an aspiring filmmaker, captured the true impact and importance of the Book Week tours in this beautiful short film.
