Family Literacy Day
Family Literacy Day® is a national awareness initiative created by ABC Life Literacy Canada in 1999 and held annually on January 27 to raise awareness of the importance of reading and engaging in other literacy-related activities as a family.
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.
Barbara Reid, award-winning Canadian author and illustrator, is the Honourary Chair of Family Literacy Day! More info. at www.FamilyLiteracyDay.ca
