Book Giveaways, Kids' Writing Contest
"Curious George" Is 65

Canadian Kid Lit Awards

Earlier this week the Canadian Children's Book Centre announced the short list for children's book of the year:

The Crazy Man, by Pamela Porter (Groundwood Books)
Earth to Audrey, by Susan Hughes, illustrated by Stéphane Poulin (Kids Can Press)
Mella and the N’anga: An African Tale,
by Gail Nyoka (Sumach Press)
Shi-shi-etko, by Nicola I. Campbell, illustrated by Kim LaFave (Groundwood Books)

As part of Children's Book Week in Canada (November 18-25), the CCBC will give away the picture book Franklin in the Dark to all Grade One students in Canada. This will be done through the schools, and Canadian home-schooling parents of first-graders can contact the CCBC's Meghan Howe (meghanATbookcentreDOTca) to get a copy for their children. (Replace the AT and the DOT with the symbols in that email address.) 

Other top Canadian prizes for kid lit include ones for French-language books, picture books, and nonfiction.
