TD Canadian Children’s Book Week materials are now available for pre-order! Click here to get posters and bookmarks, featuring Ian Wallace’s stunning illustration, for your classroom or library.
Book Week will take place from Saturday, May 6 to Saturday, May 13, 2017. Since Book Week is celebrating its 40th anniversary, and Canada is celebrating its 150th birthday, the theme we have chosen to celebrate — Read Across Canada / Lire aux quatre coins du Canada — will encourage young readers to learn about Canada by reading books set in different provinces and locations across the country. To honour the 40th anniversary of the very first Book Week tour, the CCBC asked veteran illustrator Ian Wallace to create this year’s Book Week poster image. Ian Wallace was part of the original 12 authors and illustrators that set out on the first Book Week tour in 1977.
