I Read Canadian Day: Feb. 19, 2020

Author Eric Walters
wanted to:
  • unite young readers across Canada for a day of reading Canadian books;
  • raise awareness of Canadian books; and
  • celebrate the richness, diversity and breadth of Canadian literature.
(And you know that's what CanLit for LittleCanadians is all about too!)

 Using the Ontario Library Association’s I Read Canadian fund and initiative as its foundation, I Read Canadian Day was created with input from countless individuals involved with books including authors, publishers, teachers and library organizations. 

With the support from the 
Ontario Library Association,
the Canadian Children’s Book Centre 

was declared for  

February 19, 2020

We challenge everyone from west to east, and far north to south,
 to Read Canadian (that includes reading to children)
for 15 minutes 
and to share their experience at their library, in their school, with their families and friends, or on social media.

(There are no fees, accounts, passwords or subscriptions necessary.
We just want to log how many young people will be reading Canadian on February 19, 2020.)

Teaching and supplementary materials are available at the website with more being developed to really make this a special day for all.
has lots more details and ideas.)

I'll be reading Canadian on February 19, 2020.  

Join me for the first #IREADCANADIAN DAY !
