Happy Family Literacy Day!

What a great opportunity to celebrate reading…by doing it as a family!

What books have you read lately as a family? One of my youngest daughter’s favourite books is Mandy by Julie Andrews Edwards. We read it together…and it was exciting to see that she liked it so much she read it again on her own!

Here is how ABC Canada defines Family Literacy:

Literacy is more than books. There are many ways to strengthen your literacy skills – all it takes is practicing for 15 minutes every day. Reading, writing, playing a game, following a recipe or even singing a song all help prepare children for challenges ahead and sharpen skills for adults. More ideas here: Family Literacy Ideas

Share your favourite books or activites with us…any new discoveries? old time favourites?…and of courseĀ  share them with your family today…celebrate together, snuggling on the big comfy couch!
