Toronto – June 30, 2016 – The Canadian Children’s Book Centre (CCBC) is excited to announce the launch of a new online edition of Best Books for Kids & Teens, the CCBC’s semi-annual selection guide to the best Canadian books for children and young adults.
Funded by the Canada Council for the Arts and the Department of Canadian Heritage, this online database features the best titles from the previous publishing season, for readers from toddler to teen, along with extra resources for parents and educators looking for great Canadian children’s books.
All of the titles in Best Books for Kids & Teens have been handpicked by expert committees of educators, booksellers, and school and public librarians from across Canada. Users can search for titles using a number of variables making it easy for anyone looking to stock their bookshelf in a classroom, library or at home.
The online edition of Best Books for Kids & Teens can be accessed at bestbooks.bookcentre.ca. The print edition will continue to be available for purchase on newsstands across Canada or online at www.bookcentre.ca.
