40 Years of Great Books!

The theme for TD Canadian Children's Book Week 2016 is 40 Years of Great Books! to mark the fortieth anniversary of the Canadian Children's Book Centre. As such, this year’s theme guide features the books of the authors and illustrators who will be visiting schools and libraries across the country from May 7-14, 2016.

Select one category or more to find books, then click on the book covers for more information. You can also use the search field right above the list of categories to search by author or illustrator name. To go back to the start, simply click on "Clear Filter" at the top of the list of themes. If other resources are available, such as teacher's guides, study guides or activities, these will be linked below each book's annotations.

We've interviewed some of Canada's most beloved children's book authors and illustrators. Read about how they first started writing or illustrating for children, how their craft has changed throughout the years, who their favourite characters have been and what they are working on next!

The Canadian Children's Book Centre was honoured to help Today's Parent compile a list of the 100 BEST Canadian children’s books! Make sure you share some of these beloved classics with the young readers in your life.
