Fall Issue of Canadian Children’s Book News Available Now

The Fall issue of Canadian Children’s Book News pays tribute to the 75th anniversary of the liberation of Auschwitz. It includes a profile of Kathy Kacer, one of Canada’s most influential writers on the Holocaust and Jewish stories. Author Heather Camlot explores the emotional toll that writing and researching the Holocaust has on writers. There is also a thoughtful roundtable discussion with authors who have written about the Holocaust, as well as one special publisher who has made it her mission to showcase/elevate Jewish stories and voices. If you’re a teacher looking to introduce your students to the Holocaust, long-time educator Larry Swartz has written a piece about teaching the Holocaust using Canadian books. Our bookmark column features a selection of Holocaust-themed books for Kindergarten to Grade 12 which will enlighten young readers about a dark time in history. We also introduce you to Naseem Hrab, a writer with a gift for humour and emotions in our “Keep Your Eye On…” column. Happy Reading!
