Celebrating Excellence in Canadian Children’s Literature

The Night Gardener a CCBC nomination Facebook reminded me recently that one year ago The Man with the Violin won a TD Children’s Literature Award — as if I will ever forget such a fantastic season of celebrations!

Tonight I’ll be attending the Awards ceremony again, eager to hear which books will be this year’s winners, and happy to celebrate all the books’ writers, illustrators, and publishers.

Thank you, Canadian Children’s Book Centre and TD Bank (a great partnership) for all you do to encourage and celebrate excellence in children’s literature in Canada!
