Get ready for I Read Canadian Day!
Date posted: February 12, 2020
One week from today is the launch of I Read Canadian Day. February 19th is now a national day to celebrate Canadian books for young people. Canadians are challenged to “Read Canadian” for 15 minutes and share their experience. Young people are encouraged to read a Canadian book of their choice (or have one read to them).
The goal is to raise awareness of Canadian books and celebrate the richness, diversity and breadth of Canadian literature. Visit the I Read Canadian website to register to celebrate and for tools, including games and book suggestions.
How well do you know Canadian children’s books? Take the Know your Canadian children’s book characters quiz and see how you do.
