Kids’ books of the year

Q&Q’s Books for Young People editor shares her favourite children’s titles of 2016

Canada Year by Year

Elizabeth MacLeod, Sydney Smith, ill.

Kids Can Press

IT CAN BE difficult to convince kids to care about the past, but Elizabeth MacLeod has a particular skill for making even the most banal elements of history seem fresh and interesting. In her latest work of non-fiction, the veteran author infuses her snippets of Canadiana with humour, honour, and clarity, entertaining readers even as she educates them. Sydney Smith’s fabulous illustrations make even Sir John A. look good. Canada Year by Year is a great resource for kids (and adults) who may find a few surprises in this look at our first 150 years as a nation.
