Family Literacy Day
Family Literacy = adults + children learning together
Family Literacy Day is a national awareness initiative created by ABC Life Literacy Canada in 1999 and held annually on January 27 to raise awareness of the importance of reading and engaging in other literacy-related activities as a family.Taking time every day to read or do a learning activity with children is crucial to a child’s development. Even just 15 minutes a day can improve a child’s literacy skills dramatically, and can help a parent improve their skills as well.
In Waterloo Region Family Literacy Day was celebrated on Sunday January 24th at Conestoga Mall.
Barbara Reid, award-winning Canadian author and illustrator, is named Honourary Chair of Family Literacy Day 2016!
