NFB Children’s Films Celebrate Cultural Diversity

The old NFB logo.

I just love sending people to the National Film Board of Canada site – they are a national treasure and thankfully seem very keen to provide online access to their vast collection. (Their Christmas Advent Calendar app – a film a day – is always a big hit in our house.)


Here, in one handy spot, are a serious of animated shorts reflecting the cultural diversity of Canadians. We haven’t watched them all yet, but The Girl Who Hated Books is a true gem, and my daughter watched Asthma Tech about twenty times.
