Letter from the Editor

Despite what is feeling like a very busy summer, many of us at IBBY Canada are taking time off to spend with friends and family, and to beat the heat in whatever ways we can! This year, I’ve decided to spend part of my summer holiday by taking my first trip to the Eric Carle Museum of Picture Book Art in Amherst, Massachusetts. It’s been on my bucket list for a few years now, and I absolutely can’t wait to check out the exhibitions (and the gift shop!).

If you’re still in the midst of making summer plans, check out Lesley Clement’s Regional Report Ontario for a few great suggestions. And don’t forget to save a few important dates in your calendars for this fall, including visiting the IBBY Canada booth at The Word On the Street in Toronto and Halifax!

Stay cool, everyone!
