CM: Canadian Review of Materials

Happy Canada Day!

In honour of our nation’s birthday (happy 148th!), here’s a great online resource for anyone who’s interested in exploring and evaluating Canadian books for kids and teens.

CM: Canadian Review of Materials is an online resource that reviews new books for youth that are authored, illustrated and/or published by Canadians. The website is free to access, and is entirely volunteer-driven.

New reviews are available weekly from September to June. Reviewers include public and school librarians, professors, school teachers, and other professionals with a passion for books for young people.

I’ve contributed a few reviews to CM over the years, and I’ve very much enjoyed exploring some of the diverse content created by my fellow Canucks.

Have a happy and safe Canada day!
