    And from Saturday, April 30 – Saturday, May 7, 2011, it’s also TD Canadian Children’s Book Week, “the single most important national event celebrating Canadian children’s books and the importance of reading. Close to 35,000 children, teens and adults participate in activities held in every province and territory across the country. Hundreds of schools, public libraries, bookstores and community centres host events as part of this major literary festival.”

    Worth mentioning, I would think.
