The Association of Book Publishers of BC produce school catalogues for educators, library wholesalers, and retailers working in the K-12 educational field.
Titles have been selected from publisher submissions by teacher-librarians. These titles have been chosen for their relevance to school curricula and in the catalogue are annotated by professional evaluators.
The Hackmatack Children's Choice Book Award is a literary program designed for young readers in Atlantic Canada. Each year, thousands of children in grades four to six (aged nine to twelve) read from the selection of outstanding Canadian books and vote for their favourites.
110 years after the publication of one of CanLit's most iconic characters, Montgomery and her literary creation continue to inspire new works. Here is a selection of books out this year for readers of all ages.
Saskatchewan Young Readers’ Choice Awards is a volunteer-run, non-profit, registered charity begun in 2001.
The mission of SYRCA – Saskatchewan Young Readers’ Choice Awards – The Willow Awards, Inc. is to promote reading and celebrate Canadian literature. Each year, Saskatchewan children and youth vote for Willow Award recipients from finalists nominated in three award categories.
The three categories were established to encourage participation by all children, regardless of the level at which they are reading. They include:
The Shining Willow Award for books written for young readers
The Diamond Willow Award for books written for upper elementary readers in grades 4 to 6
The Snow Willow Award for books written for readers in grades 7 & up
Participation in the Willow Awards is free to Saskatchewan children and youth. They may vote for their favourite book in any category in which they have read the minimum number of books required. Individuals may vote. Teachers, librarians or teacher-librarians can submit tallies of votes made in their buildings.
