Language Books

The Canadian Language Museum has a small library of books related to our exhibits.

Book of the Month

The World Encyclopedia of Calligraphy features 55 living scripts with an overview of their origins and traditions, and details on creating each of the scripts, including their principal writing tool. It is a sumptuous visual tour of the world’s writing.

This book is an illustrative complement to forthcoming CLM resources on calligraphy.

Featured Book for Children

The CLM has several children’s books, which provide an introduction for language beginners young and old.

Gina Valle’s project collects the winning and finalist submissions from the 2014 Multilingual Kid Lit Award, which is sponsored by the Rainbow Caterpillar bookstore. Supporting UNESCO’s recognition of the importance of a mother language in children’s self-esteem and in the maintenance of culture and language, this book brings together “everyone, grandparents, French immersion students, multilingual parents and children, curious readers big and small.” Founder of Diversity Matters, which provides diversity workshops and training, Valle is committed to a Canada that lives comfortably with many languages and cultures in our everyday life.
