“Reading Lights” Initiative - Selected Books

Here are the books selected for the first installation of the Reading Lights project. These wonderful books will soon be featured on lamp posts around Vancouver. These plaques will provide spontaneous encounters with BC books for children and their caregivers near parks, playgrounds, schools, and libraries. They are intended to spark an interest in stories and reading, while celebrating the work of BC authors and illustrators. Installation of the plaques and “reading under the lamp posts” will be launched this winter.
