Welcome to Canadian Children’s Book Week!

Canada’s largest celebration of reading

Join us in celebrating Canadian Children’s Book Week and bring the magic of books and reading to children all across Canada!

What is it?

Canadian Children’s Book Week is the single most important national event celebrating Canadian children’s books and the importance of reading. Each May, over hundreds of readings are given to thousands of children, teens and adults in over 100 communities across the country as we make every possible effort to reach children in more remote regions and communities. Hundreds of schools, public libraries, bookstores and community centres host events as part of this major literary festival.

When is it?

The next Canadian Children’s Book Week touring program will run from Saturday, May 2 to Saturday, May 9, 2020. Up to 15 Canadian children’s authors, illustrator and storytellers will be visiting schools, libraries, community centres and bookstores across Canada throughout the week.

Who organizes it?

Canadian Children’s Book Week is organized by the Canadian Children’s Book Centre, in partnership with the Storytellers of Canada/Conteurs du Canada, and is made possible through the generous support of our sponsors and funders.
