Canadian children’s books provided to school-aged children


Small Saul Black Background

Organized in association with the Canadian Children’s Book Centre, the TD Grade One Book Giveaway is the largest free-book distribution program to school-aged children in Canada. All English and French Grade One students receive a free copy of a Canadian children’s book, compliments of TD, which they can keep to take home and read with their parents and caregivers.

The annual autumn book distribution is supported by a national author/illustrator reading tour in schools all across Canada.  2016 marks the 17th year anniversary of the TD Grade One Book Giveaway Program.

The 2016 book, Small Saul, is written and illustrated by Ashley Spires and published by Kids Can Press.

Small Saul is a different kind of pirate. Will Small Saul be able to prove his worth as a pirate or will he be thrown overboard? Go to Kids Can Press to read more about this book.
