In the Fall issue of Canadian Children’s Book News we chat with five authors who have written books about immigrant and refugee experiences. The stories are uplifting and help children gain a better understanding of the world we live in today. Be sure to check out our “Bookmark!” column where you’ll find even more titles on this topic.
Award-winning author Christopher Paul Curtis, whose latest title, The Journey of Little Charlie, came out earlier this year, is featured in our profile piece. You’ll meet Sarah Sawler in our “Keep Your Eye On…” column and Larry Swartz introduces teachers to picture books they can use to discuss diversity in the classroom.
Lee Edward Födi and Kallie George introduce us to the Creative Writing for Children Society which helps children nurture their love of reading and writing. And, as always, our “Red Leaf Literature” and “We Recommend” sections contain reviews of fabulous books for the children and teens in your life.
