Canadian Books for Canada Day!

Tomorrow, July 1st, is Canada Day. So why not celebrate with some Canadian books? Here are three ways to discover excellent CanCon for all ages!

1. Check out Canadian Bookshelf, the new website featuring books by Canadians. Tagline: "If it's Canadian, it's here."

2. Enter the Great Canadian Blog Bash for a chance to win some great prizes (including books, of course!). The contest closes on Canada Day, and is open to Canadian residents only--plus, the giveaways are all Canadian-sponsored! How cool is that? (We're sponsoring SMS Book Reviews, if you'd like to win some of our books!)

3. Starting July 4th, visit Ten Stories Up for Cantastic Authorpalooza! Interviews with a total of 20 Canadian children's authors and illustrators will be posted, and each week will be topped off with a giveaway. We're pleased to announce that two of our authors will be profiled: Ruth Ohi on July 5th and Claire Eamer on July 12th. Stop by and check it out!

Happy Canada Day!
