This week, the finalists for the 2013 Canadian Children's Book Centre Awards were announced! These prestigious Canadian book awards are presented in October. Congratulations to all the nominated authors and illustrators!
This year, there will also be a chance for kids to vote for their favourite from a selection of shortlisted titles for the TD Canadian Children's Literature Fan Choice Award.
