Media release from the CCBC:
“We are excited to announce the launch of our new book bank highlighting Canadian titles that focus on diversity, social justice and activism. We believe that there is a dire need for more diverse stories in Canadian children’s literature and our new book bank is a way for us to support these stories while providing a tool to help readers have quick and easy access to hundreds of titles.
This new book bank is perfect for teachers, librarians and parents to use in finding great Canadian content. All of the books included focus on social justice and activism or feature stories about diverse characters or people.
Thank you to all the publishers who submitted titles to the project.
Look for new titles in 2019!”
