The reading experience…what a wonderful one it is for both children and adults alike! The joy of reading starts at an early age, and if it is properly cultivated, will last long into young adulthood and beyond. Children libraries and bookstores are a great resource to find children books that are engaging and interesting for sparking young minds. Canadian literature has done a fantastic job of producing children books that keep young readers interested and instilling the desire to seek more mentally and visually engaging literature.
You can find very good Canadian books through the Canada 411 resource. You can find popular books, age-appropriate children books and material and the best offline and online resources to find these books. Some of the Canadian market’s best Canadian books include:
- Alligator Pie by Dennis Lee
- Anne of Green Gables by Lucy Maud Montgomery
- The Baby Project by Sarah Ellis
- Book: A Trilogy by Bernice Therman Hunter
- Biscuits in the Cupboard by Barbara Nichol
- Bud, Not Buddy by Christopher Paul
- Camilla Gryski’s Favorite String Games by Camilla Gryski
For the best resources and reading experience, a journey to a local bookstore can be one that you nor your child will soon forget. To be able to touch, smell and handle books is a delightfully rewarding experience, both for adults and for children. If you’re looking for bookstores offline, you can also go to the same information portal at Canada 411 to locate the stores or libraries that carry the books that you want to see. Children really love the experience of going into bookstores and locating their favorite books on the store’s shelves. Many bookstores that also have cafes are especially delightful for them, and they can sit and enjoy their newly purchased book with a cup of java (decaf, of course), all while they read and take in their story, line by line.
