Family Literacy Day

A fellow Canadian writer and blogger friend of mine, Laura Best, has posted an article on Family Literacy Day which I am reblogging. She has suggested books that would make an enjoyable read and included Amanda in England-The Missing Novel!
It’s That Time Again, by Laura Best
No skill is more crucial to the future of a child, or to a democratic and prosperous society, than literacy.”
- Los Angeles Times, “A Child Literacy Initiative for the Greater Los Angeles Area”
Family Literacy Day here in Canada is on January 27th. It’s a day set aside to remind us all about the importance of literacy, and to help promote reading. It’s a time for family, and reading, and anything regarding the written word. You can find out more about Family Literacy Day by checking out the ABC Life Literacy Canada Site.
In honour of Family Literacy Day I thought it would be fun to give a shout-out to some great Canadian books enjoyable to those of us who are young at heart.
