FRC Book Lists
The Family Resource Centre has developed lists of popular books available on a number of common issues related to children and youth. The books and resources on the lists are selected from the collection at the Family Resource Centre at McMaster Children's Hospital. The selection is based on feedback and suggestions from families and staff, and from on-going reviews at the Family Resource Centre.
The material that we provide does not mean that we are approving or suggesting that this information is right for you, the patient or your family. Many of our resources are general in nature, and may not apply to your situation. Your health care professional is the best source
of information about your child's health and concerns.
Please use the following links to search for resources available online through the hospital. If you would like a hard copy of any of the listed resources, please contact the Family Resource Centre at 905-521-2100 ext. 77243 or email frc at hhsc dot ca.
