Family Literacy Day, Friday, January 25, 2013 at the Ontario Early Years Centre

This year marks the 15th anniversary of Family Literacy Day, a nation-wide initiative created by ABC Life Literacy. In honour of this milestone, this year’s theme is 15 Minutes of Fun!

The Ontario Early Years Centre (OEYC) at the Ajax Community Centre is hosting an event from 9:30-11:30 am on Friday, January 25th and have put together an engaging program of activities for families with children aged 0 to 6 years.

As part of the celebration I will be reading from my two books, 101 Creepy Canadian Jokes illustrated by Bill Dickson and Over at the Rink: A Hockey Counting Book illustrated by Scot Ritchie (both published by Scholastic Canada).
