Keep Your library stocked with Canadian content!
Freshbooks provides the ultimate in value and convenience with a one-price subscription that delivers high-quality, well-timed packages to your school or library four times per year.
The packages aim to provide the best Canadian, recent releases for each age category starting from Early Years (0-5) all the way up to Young Adult (12-18). Our goal is to provide a service that is consistent, dependable and trustworthy and to take away some of the work librarians and technicians face, keeping their libraries filled with the best Canadian content for kids and teens.
Our reviewers are real kids, teachers and parents who check for style, content and make note of any sensitive subject areas. Trends, interests and curriculum mandates are all considered when making our selections.
Included with our packages are detailed notes on many of the books, giving teachers and librarians an excellent starting place for preschool storytimes and classroom or library read-alouds. They are also helpful when making book recommendations to middle graders and teens.
