3 Books to Read this Family Literacy Day


Leading up to Family Literacy Day on January 27th, we've compiled a list of children's books that will get your children excited to get outside and take advantage of this unusual long-lasting Chinook weather! Each book highlights a different aspect of the outdoors — whether it's spending quality time with loved ones or listening for the sounds of nature — which will inspire your little ones to look at the natural world with a renewed sense of wonder and curiosity.

 

What is Family Literacy Day?

"Family Literacy Day takes place every January 27th to raise awareness about the importance of reading and engaging in other literacy-related activities as a family. Since 1999, thousands of schools, libraries, literacy organizations and other community groups have taken part in the initiative. ABC creates free learning and promotional resources for anyone that wants to get involved. Taking time every day to read or do a learning activity with children is crucial to a child’s development, improving a child’s literacy skills dramatically, and can help a parent improve their skills as well." —ABC Life Literacy Canada
