Books Are Gold

Tuesday, March 17, 2015


To help promote the joy of reading, Kumon and First Book Canada have joined together in a literacy campaign during which they will distribute more than 10,000 books to schools and community based programs in Canada. As a part of this initiative, Kumon and First Book have been hosting reading celebrations in February and March at high needs elementary schools throughout the country. They were also so kind to send a small donation that I could give to my school library. This isn't the first time our school has been the recipient of donated books since First Book has provided our students with books on more than one occasion over the years. The students in our school community have greatly benefited and so it was an honour to be able to help make a small contribution on behalf of Kumon. The stuff is like paper gold!

If you would like to help spread the joy of reading, I am giving away a Kumon gift pack full of brand new books and supplies. (Open to Canada only.)

  7. Even with all the technology books still remain very important! As much as I love my e-reader, there is still something comforting about holding the book and reading. (Judy Cowan)

  23. That's fantastic Diana! We were just talking about how books are still so very important last night at work (me and my student coworkers)! And how paper books are just soooo much better than digi-books.
