This collection of Canadian Author & Book Multimedia Resources was created by TeachingBooks.net to allow students, teachers, and families to learn and have meaningful discussions about favorite Canadian authors and their books. Decisions determining which authors, illustrators, and titles to include in this online collection were made by the staff of TeachingBooks.net, independent of third-party influences. No one paid or gave anything for inclusion in this digital collection. Numerous criteria were included in our decision-making process, including the TeachingBooks.net Collection Development Policy, access to the author of the books, and our belief that the books were popular and well read within Canadian schools.

For additional resources about Canadian authors and books, use the "Special Collection" option on the Advanced Search.
