Bulk Subscriptions

We understand. With budget cutbacks and fewer resources, school libraries are suffering. Teachers and librarians are faced with the challenging task of buying the best books for their schools on a limited budget. But with over 600 books published for kids and teens in Canada every year, how do you know what books will really connect with students?

Save Money – choose the right book every time!

For 45 years the Canadian Children’s Book Centre (CCBC) has been helping teachers and librarians choose the best books for their classrooms and libraries. For the cost of just one book, your school’s educators can have the resources to help them pick the right books every time.

Best Books for Kids & Teens the indispensable selection guide

  • This semi-annual guide lists recommended books for kids and teens ages 0-18
  • Each book is handpicked by expert committees of educators, booksellers, and literature enthusiasts
  • Each listing contains a summary of the book, the interest level by age, the recommended reading level and thematic links – a simple reference tool to help you select appropriate books for your curriculum

Canadian Children’s Book News – the latest reviews

  • Reviews of the latest books by Canadian authors and illustrators with helpful thematic links
  • Author profiles, themed reading lists, trends in literature and more
