Canadian Book Reading for Children


2015 has been proclaimed the Year of Sport in Canada, and Japanese athletes will be among those participating in the 60 international sporting events held in Canada this year. This includes the FIFA Women's World Cup Canada 2015, where defending champions Nadeshiko Japan captured second place earlier this month.

The sporting spirit will be on display with at this month's Book Reading of "Caramba". Every single cat in the world can fly, except Caramba. He tries very hard but always fails. But he can do something other cats cannot. What is his special talent? Award-winning author and illustrator Marie-Louise Gay, best known for her "Stella" and "Sam" books, brings us an endearing character in Caramba.
