February 19th is the inaugural I Read Canadian Day. This is a national day to celebrate Canadian books for young people. On this day, let’s all Read Canadian to celebrate the richness, diversity and breadth of Canadian literature!
-Librarians- Display those amazing Canadian books so they are easy to grab. Sign your school up for this fun day at http://www.ireadcanadian.com/day. It’s fast, it’s free, and it supports everything you love about literature!
-Teachers- schedule 15 minutes into your day, this February 19th, 2020, to stop and read out loud to your students from a Canadian book. Or have your students read themselves from a Canadian book of their choosing. Or invite a Canadian author in to read from their books. Or do all three!!
Come on Canada! On February 19th let’s all read a Canadian book and share our reading experience with family and friends, and on social media. There is so much to celebrate with Canadian books! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uuFn-KOKJ2w
