Celebrating Indigenous Picture Books

IBBY Canada is pleased to present the 2021 edition of From Sea to Sea to Sea: Celebrating Indigenous Picture Books. 

Twenty five of the best Indigenous picture books published in Canada between 2018–2020 were selected for this collection. Care was taken to ensure that the collection reflects the diversity of First Nations, Métis, and Inuit voices from sea to sea to sea, and that the titles are available and in print for anyone who wishes to access them. 

All of these titles are available to borrow through the TRAC library system with your library card.

Reading Lists

Further reading suggestions can be found throughout the library on bookmarks and other brochures. 

Ask library staff for readers advisory assistance - we'd love to help!
