Celebrate World Read Aloud Day (March 5) with youngCanLit authors


If you're fortunate enough to have someone read aloud to you this day, enjoy.  Or if you can read aloud to a child, a class, a loved one, then do it.  The intimacy of words dispersed from one person to another is something that can rarely be duplicated.  But, if you'd like to listen to a youngCanLit author read aloud from his or her own work, enjoy these selected readings for World Read Aloud Day, several of which were produced by our wonderful Canadian Children's Book Centre. (n.b. There are so many more youngCanLit authors reading from their books on the Canadian Children's Book Centre channel including Kathy Stinson, Richard Scrimger, Patricia Storms, Marsha Skrypuch, Sylvia McNicoll, Richard Scarsbrook, Rosemary McCarney, Karen Krossing, Stephanie McLellan, Kari-Lynn Winters, Rick Revelle, Maggie de Vries, Cora Taylor, Helaine Becker, Amanda West Lewis, Jan Coates and Beverley Terrell-Deutsch.  Whew!  The CCBC has done an astounding job of getting our youngCanLit authors and illustrators to read from their own books.  Well done, CCBC!)
