Since 1989, the National Library has mounted an annual campaign
to promote the joy of reading and raise awareness of Canadian children's
literature among young people. Each year, the Read Up On It kit contains
an annotated reading list of award-winning Canadian books in both official
languages, as well as a list centred around a specific theme, compiled
by the ARCHIVED - Canadian Children's Literature.
