I’m reading out loud from MY TEACHER’S NOT HERE! in this promotional video for I Read Canadian https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uuFn-KOKJ2w

-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

Canadians love a great picture book, including Calgary Flames Captain Mark Giordano, seen reading MY TEACHER’S NOT HERE! (Kids Can Press, 2018)
