It’s the first ever I Read Canadian Day! Take 15 minutes out of your day today to read a Canadian book. Any Canadian book! And if you are so inspired:
- read out loud to your class, library, family, or pet
- post about that book on your social media feeds
- write a book review on Goodreads, Amazon, or Indigo
- donate to the I Read Canadian Fund, which helps put Canadian books in the hands of Canadian kids.
Looking for Canadian kids books to read from? The Canadian Children’s Book Centre has great resources, and CANSCAIP is full of Canadian authors. You won’t be able to read from my new book, The Boreal Forest: A Year in the World’s Largest Land Biome, because it isn’t coming out until April. BUT, you can watch these two videos I made for I Read Canadian Day. In the first, you’ll get a sneak peak at the art and text. In the second, I talk a little bit about the inspiration for the book and how it came to be.
