It is International Children’s Book Day (April 2), a perfect opportunity to celebrate some of the best of children’s literature from all over the world, not least from within our specialist area, the British Isles.

So, here are ten of the best for younger children, the kind of books that light fires in the mind, whether they are read alone or with a grown-up; books that inspire further reading and further exploration, and sometimes provide an imaginary companion for a lifetime.

A Bear Called Paddington – Michael Bond
This year, the movie adaptation of Paddington Bear will hit the screens, so there’s never been a better time to investigate Michael Bond’s chaotic tales, starring an indignant and clumsy bear from darkest Peru, who finds a new home in London after arriving at Paddington station.

This poem by Andrew Motion was inspired by a Thomas Jones painting in London's National Gallery in which Motion reflects upon the enduring value of artistic creation.

This nonsense poem was written by Dr. W. H. Williams for a faculty club dinner on the eve of the physicist Eddington's departure from Berkeley in 1924.

Thomas Hood wrote at the start of the nineteenth century, but he sounds surprisingly modern. In this poem, Hood takes a look at winter in a cold, urban climate, expressed with a nice sense of humour.

More than half of all children in the UK are living in areas with illegal levels of air pollution, shocking new figures have revealed.

Around 8.3 million children live in local authority areas where levels of harmful pollutants exceeded legal limits in 2015.

The number equates to 61 per cent of all under 18s who are being exposed to illegal levels of the dangerous nitrogen dioxide, Labour party analysis has suggested.

Between 1869 and the late 1930s, over 100,000 juvenile migrants were sent to Canada from the British Isles during the child emigration movement. Motivated by social and economic forces, churches and philanthropic organizations sent orphaned, abandoned and pauper children to Canada. Many believed that these children would have a better chance for a healthy, moral life in rural Canada, where families welcomed them as a source of cheap farm labour and domestic help.

After arriving by ship, the children were sent to distributing and receiving homes, such as Fairknowe in Brockville, and then sent on to farmers in the area. Although many of the children were poorly treated and abused, others experienced a better life here than if they had remained in the urban slums of England. Many served with the Canadian and British Forces during both World Wars

Library and Archives Canada (LAC) holds unique and extensive records about British Home Children, such as passenger lists, Immigration Branch correspondence files and inspection reports, non-government collections such as the Middlemore Home fonds, as well as indexes to some records held in the United Kingdom. The records also include names of older boys and girls who were recruited by immigration agents in the U.K. for farming and domestic work in Canada. Please note that most documents have been created in English. Members of the British Isles Family History Society of Greater Ottawa (BIFHSGO) and other volunteers are indexing the names of juvenile migrants found in these records.
