Promoting English- and French-language Canadian children's literature, the Read Up On It publication fostered the love of reading in young people for 20 years. This bilingual annotated bibliography highlighted notable books on a given theme, and featured award-winning, Canadian children's books in all categories. Library and Archives Canada (LAC) offered this publication free of charge.

Please note that Read Up On It is no longer published, but editions from 1993 to 2006 are available on the LAC website.

The last theme of the series was Ice Floes and Frost.
