THE BOOK: Amazing Atlantic Canadian Kids

Alright, time to get reading. Would you rather read your book or do you prefer to listen to the story with the audiobook version? And if you’d rather read it, would you prefer a paperback or a book you can read off a screen? 

Just make sure to let your teacher know so we can get the book that’s the perfect fit for you!
WAIT, DID YOU SAY YOUNG PEOPLE LIKE ME CREATED THIS?
Yup, they sure did.  A whole bunch of youth from across Atlantic Canada, just a little older than you, created this stuff! They did this through an organization called Digitally Lit: Atlantic Canadian Youth Read. Digitally Lit is a youth engagement strategy focused on working to empower Atlantic Canadian youth through reading and digital spaces. They are partnered with five publishers representing each province. 
 
 
 
  • Breakwater Books is an English language publisher based in Newfoundland and Labrador.
