100 Best Canadian Children's Books of All Time

Today's Parent magazine has just published their list of the "100 Best Canadian Kids Books of All Time." I was pretty pleased to see my own Mr. Zinger's Hat on it. I'm going to read some of the books that I'm unfamiliar with.

Hello, Saskatchewan!

I'm very excited to be heading to Saskatchewan tomorrow for a Children's Book Week tour of Saskatoon and surroundings. I'll by driving myself for the first few days and hope to get a better sense of the landscape which made such a striking impression on me when I drove through the province some thirty years ago. I'm especially looking forward to Prince Albert National Park, where I plan to go on Sunday before the tour begins. And then it's on to Prince Albert, Nipawin, Melfort, Lake Lenore, Saskatoon, Langham, North Battleford, and Meadow Lake. How great is that? It'll be a treat to meet all the kids, teachers, and librarians along the way.
