My Faves From the Today's Parent List of Top 100 Canadian Kids' Books of All Time

By Thismomloves @ThisMomLoves
When Today's Parent recently released a list of the Top 100 Canadian Kids' Books of All Time, (based on expert input from coast to coast) I thought it was a great idea...so great that I decided to chat about it with CHEX Daily hosts Teresa Kaszuba and Mike Judson in my latest Teacher, Teacher appearance.
In this segment, I share some of my favorite picks from the list at various age levels (the folks at Today's Parent have conveniently colour-coded the list by age group).
I'm at the 27:20  mark, and you can also find the video here.

Remember, providing your kids with great literature doesn't have to break the bank. Your public library will have most of these titles (I love to search the online catalog and put books on hold if they're not currently on the shelf) and your child's school librarian would be thrilled to help you out. Pick your must-reads and send a note to school with your child - free backpack delivery included!

The books I showed on-air were:
The Paper Bag Princess - Robert Munsch
The Party - Barbara Reid
Something From Nothing - Phoebe Gilman
The Hockey Sweater - Roch Carrier
Owls in the Family - Farley Mowat
This Can't Be Happening at Macdonald Hall - Gordon Korman
Elijah of Buxton - Christopher Paul Curtis
The Breadwinner - Deborah Ellis
Silverwing - Kenneth Oppel
(Oh, and for those of you who have already asked: my nails are "Gilded Leopard" Jamberry wraps!)
By the way, if you're a new CHEX Daily viewer thinking perhaps I was a little diggy with host Mike Judson near the end, you should know that in almost every one of my segments he manages to mention how much he hated school as a child...so I really was happy to hear there was a book he liked. Off-air he clarified with me that he has always loved to read - as long as no one told him he had to!
If you don't have a copy of the June issue of Today's Parent, you can click here for a printable version of the full list, and don't miss the Chapters Indigo giveaway where you can win ALL 100 books! (Contest ends 6/12/15.)
I tried to think of a classic book missing from the list and I couldn't do it...can you?
