CBC TD Kids Book Club

CBC Presents: The TD Kids Book Club – Celebrate the Joy of Reading and Experience the World of Radio

Join us for the TD Kids Book Club (www.cbc.ca/kidsbookclub) this fall and celebrate the joy of reading with the five books nominated for the 2010 TD Canadian Children’s Literature Award.

CBC Radio One, in partnership with the Canadian Children’s Book Centre and TD Bank Financial Group, is running a contest aimed at middle school students in seven locations across Canada – Greater Vancouver area (690 AM), Calgary area (99.1 FM), Edmonton area (93.9 FM), Manitoba area (89.3 FM), Toronto area (99.1 FM), Montreal area (88.5 FM) and Mainland Nova Scotia area (90.5 FM).

It’s an opportunity for young readers to win a visit from one of the five shortlisted authors for a book club discussion, plus copies of the book. CBC Radio will record the event for broadcast.

Please spread the word. The entry deadline is fast approaching.

It’s easy to enter! We’re asking classes to write a story or a poem to tell the CBC why they should bring the Book Club to your school. To find out what’s happening in your location and how you can enter, click on your region below.
