TD Grade One Book Giveaway 2017

Français

Good Morning, CanadaSince 2000, in cooperation with ministries of education, school boards and library organizations across Canada — the CCBC has given every Grade One child a free Canadian children’s book.

The book is to be taken home by each child to keep and to read with their parents. This far-reaching annual book giveaway program, which provides over 500,000 books to Grade One children across Canada, is fully funded by TD Bank Group. The program is intended to encourage literacy and reading for young children and supports the Canadian Children’s Book Centre’s mandate of bringing great Canadian books to Canadian children and to promote a love of reading and a passion for books.

This fall, Grade One children nation-wide will take home a special edition of Good Morning, Canada (Bonjour, Canada!), written and illustrated by Andrea Beck and published by Scholastic Canada.

As the pages turn on bright scenes and changing seasons across the country, rhyming text cheerily greets the sights and sounds of a Canadian morning. From a pair of moose spied through an open tent flap at sunrise to a gaggle of Canada geese at a school bus stop, a morning game of shinny on an outdoor rink, and checking the sap buckets at a maple syrup farm, these inviting pages capture a familiar Canada that will delight young readers.

The coordination of the TD Grade One Book Giveaway Program is done by the Canadian Children’s Book Centre. School boards and ministries of education in all provinces will be contacted in spring 2017 for their Grade One enrolment figures. Schools should contact their school board or ministry of education to ensure that they are on the list to receive the giveaway book. If you have any questions regarding the 2017 program, please contact Karen Ingham at bookgiveaway@bookcentre.ca.
