Are you ready to S-P-E-L-L? Watch twenty-one bright young students from across the country go word-for-word in this year's Postmedia Canspell Spelling bee. CBC Television will present all the academic action on Sunday, April 1 at 7 p.m. ET (7:30 NT).
It's no surprise that these young students love to read novels (when they're not reading dictionaries!). So to mark this fun and educational event, we've compiled a list of some of their favourites. Each link leads to an excerpt from that book or series. Perhaps you'll spot something new for the young wordsmith in your life!
