The Best Kids’ Books of the Season

There are so many wonderful books for kids that sometimes it’s hard to know which ones are right for your child. One of the ways to narrow down the search is to check out the books shortlisted for this season’s awards. Here in Canada, that’s made easy by the Canadian Children’s Book Centre, who coordinate a whole host of kids’ book awards including the TD Canadian Children’s Book Award.

Here is the 2017 short-list with the winner being announced November 17th. IMG_1400

And if introducing wonderful books to your children isn’t enough, CBC will be running kids’ book clubs across the country with some cool prizes.  CBC Books has launched a Fan Choice Contest, giving readers the opportunity to vote on their favourite book of the five titles shortlisted for the TD Canadian Children’s Literature Award. The author with the most votes will receive $5,000. Those who vote in the contest will be entered in a random draw to win $500, a school visit from one of the nominated authors and a financial donation to their school library. (Kids in Canada  aged 5-12 are eligible)

So, get to the library or bookstore and get your kids reading!
