CanLit for Kids Books Reviews
I just viewed your collection and, as always, it looks fabulous! You always do such a great job selecting books that appeal to a wide variety of ages, reading levels and interests. It certainly makes my life easier as a teacher-librarian. Thanks for all the continuing work you do to provide our school libraries with top-notch books for kids!

I was delighted to get my Spring package yesterday. As usual the selection is fantastic. I already have teachers borrowing books before I can get them properly catalogued. ...
Thanks also for the surprise gift. It looks like a great book. Mostly I'm deeply touched that you would give us this book ... It says a lot about your company ... I appreciate that more than words can say. I hope you have a great day.

Setting up a Canadian school library is a big challenge, especially when you’re overseas. Thank you, CanLit, for your excellent assistance in ensuring we have a great selection of contemporary Canadian books. Your packages take the guess work out of what to order and are always well-received. I appreciate having friendly, knowledgeable assistance just an email away. Keep up the excellent work!

I'm looking forward to receiving the Fall box of goodies. It's been interesting to see how many of the titles you carry have made it on to the Red Cedar list!
Just got your books for fall and I am blown away by all of them. As I looked through them I got more and more excited and will be reading everyone before I get them out on the shelves for the kids. Great job, you've made my job just a little bit easier.Bonnie Bigras
I am absolutely THRILLED with the book selections and can’t thank you enough for this amazing service. I am SO pleased with everything in every way. I am now busy with my nose in a book almost every available minute – and loving it.

I heard of Canlit through my prof from the U of A (I’m currently taking library classes online), then others taking the same class raved about it as well, and then I heard about it from another teacher-librarian in our division who learned about CanLit when she attended the national library conference in Winnipeg. Word of mouth...what a wonderful thing! Thank you again for your help,

I retired from my teacher-librarian position at Dragon Lake in Quesnel at the end of June. Thank you for your incredible service over the past several years. The library at Dragon boasts many wonderful CanLit titles that often appear on Red Cedar nominee lists.

We are extremely happy with your service. It is nice to have someone find all these wonderful Canadian books for us.

I love your package, I have recently received. Very well done thank you. I liked it so much in fact that I cannot wait until the list comes up for winter. Do you by chance have a selection list that you are choosing from so I know which books not to order before your package arrives at my door. Any help would be greatly appreciated and again, very nice work.

Thank you so much for the extra posters!
We've always looked forward to the latest shipment to explore the treasures to be found inside each box. And what treasures they are! With a happy mix of non-fiction and fiction, and age appropriate for our school, each shipment conveniently brings current books to our library without having to plan a trip to the bookstore. The teacher notes in each package offer a quick insight into the titles and are always helpful. We know that CanLit books are published in Canada, and in this day and age, we find comfort in that. A very big thank you from us.
