Children in the Book Center


Every year the FSP Book Center of Montreal organizes encounters for children on topics chosen to get young people interested in reading, acquaint them with new publications in the field and bring them closer to the wonderful world of books. These cultural events often include the presence and participation of the authors and illustrators of the texts, who go to our book center to meet their audience–a privileged moment for the children, who are thus able to learn about the stages involved in creating a text. The authors and artists also carry out animation activities by means of stories, mimes, music and readings–all with the intention of fostering and increasing the children’s basic cultural formation, reinforcing their relationship with the text, and helping them develop a taste for reading.
