Just before the launch of TD Canadian Children's Book Week we were lucky to attend meet-and-greet with Canadian authors and illustrators participating in this initiative at Drake Hotel in Toronto. The event started with presentation from TD Bank Group highlighting the importance of supporting children’s literacy and bringing the best books and materials to Canadian kids. Then authors shared their exciting stories about meeting the families and children during TD Canadian Children's Book Week. For more than 35 years, TD Canadian Children's Book Week has been emphasizing the value of reading and introducing Canadian kids to their favourite authors, poets, storytellers and illustrators.
I think kid’s books are pure magic that gives kids opportunities to follow the exciting adventures, become a character of the stories, imagine, travel, learn and unwrap their natural talents.
During that event we were also introduced to new web resources created at https://tdreads.com/ where parents, kids and teachers have an opportunity to look through book lists and find any interesting book based on child age, an author or an illustrator with short introduction.
