It’s time for the Battle of the Books. A few days ago, CBC released the trailers for the Canada Reads 2012 True Stories books. I’ve had a look through all the trailers on their page, and while all of the authors have had unbelievable experiences and gripping stories to tell, I think the book I most want to read is Prisoner of Tehran, by Marina Nemat.
However, (spoiler alert!) I just checked the website for the first elimination and Prisoner of Tehran was the first to go. Sad times.
I may not have young kids, or even a family that loves to read a whole lot, but I still support this day. I support any day that encourages people to read more.
Family Literacy Day was created by ABC Canada in 1999, in hopes of raising (what else?) awareness of the importance of reading as a family. 1.5+ million Canadians have participated in this day since its debut, and the numbers are expected to increase with each passing year.
Do you participate in Family Literacy Day in your country?
