The TD Summer Reading Club is a fun (and free!) program for kids held by participating Canadian public libraries.
And what a program it was! Canadian kids just like you submitted almost 3,000 story endings, over 16,000 book reviews and nearly 11,000 jokes! The 2017 program has ended, and although submissions are now closed, you can still have fun reading what other kids have sent in. You’ll only be able to log in to your notebook until October 31, so make sure you take one last look at all your reading and writing achievements before then! Way to go! See you again in 2018!
Reading fun for kids from Canada’s public libraries
I really enjoyed this book, which might be because I really like learning about Native Peoples. I hope you enjoyed this book as much as I did!
its a good mesage
Heard of these dear canada books before. F riend victoria read these in school.
This book really helped me understand about people in residential school
this book gave me an insight on early life of The First Nations People. After reading about how Violet is treated, it makes you think twice the next time you complain to your parents about the food on your plate…
to me its like a history lesson and its in the 19 hundreds.
I liked the book but it was very sad I even cried a bit. I think people that haven’t read this book should read it and people that have should read it again.
It’s sad what happened in the past but there aren’t more any residential schools anymore
amazing book! she is able to get through some preeetty hard times.
From the cover,it looks like a fighting book,but it’s actually quite sad,I felt bad for Violet when she had to stay at home for christmas…
The person looks so mad,but sad at the same time on the cover…
I feel sad for violet
but I love this book
it was amazing but touching. The residential school was a bit cruel
I feel really bad for Violet when she is not able to go home for Christmas
It was a great but really super sad book to read I balled my head off
its sad to think that it happend in Canada the place there was supposed to be freedom for every race and culture1
It’s shocking that Canada the “land of freedom” did that and it wasn’t even that long ago! That book was so interesting and a bit freaky! I mean I can’t belive she nearly suffocated somebody!
I find the stories of residential schools quite interesting. They are something that I think that everyone should know about. And every school was different, so every book on residential schools are different.
