Family Literacy Week in Vancouver
This is a picture of my friend, Ginny and her granddaughter, Emma, reading together. Emma isn't two yet but obviously enjoys her books.
Every year we celebrate Family Literacy in Vancouver, and LOMCIRA co-sponsors Write On with the Vancouver Public Library and Literacy BC, a popular event for families. This year on Saturday, January 24, we will have popular children's authors, Bob Heidbreder and Margriet Ruurs reading from their books and autographing as well as fun literacy stations for children and parents. Refreshments are served and it's always a wonderful day for all. To find out more about Family Literacy week and to register for this event, please visit Literacy BC's website. If you as teachers, are interested in having Bob or Margriet work with students at your school, please feel free to contact me for contact information!
