IBBY Canada

IBBY Canada is one of more than 70 National Sections of the International Board on Books for Young People ( IBBY ), a non-profit organization that was founded in the wake of World War II by Jella Lepman. This remarkable woman believed in the power of children's books to bridge cultures and, ultimately, to promote peace.
