Children’s Book Resources During Covid19 and Beyond
Imagine a youtube channel devoted to video resources all about Canadian books for children and youth?
Bibliovideo has been launched! The program will bring readings, interviews, activities, trailers, and reviews to teachers, parents, and kids of all ages.
The closing of schools and libraries motivated the Canadian Children’s Book Centre to work hard to get Bibliovideo up and running ahead of schedule. They’re presenting ten days of giveaways for new subscribers (till May 4) to celebrate!
More videos will be added as time goes on, including (I hope!) those attached to this post. Please share this good news with educators, parents, and anyone else you know with an interest in Canadian books for young people.
Happy viewing! Happy reading!
