Reading is joyful and enriching. It opens doors to learning, fuels imagination, inspires hope – and sets kids up for a brighter future. But, when the pandemic hit, reading resources weren’t easily accessible to all families. Schools, libraries and other community resources were closed. So a coalition of literacy groups came together, along with food bank partners, to form Read On Canada!/Lisons Canada! Since summer 2020, Read On Canada! has distributed approximately 300,000 books to children through food banks across Canada. In 2021, the coalition was honoured with a World Literacy Award for its work. Join in! Check out all the fun activities right here on this website, and keep ‘reading on’ with a child in your life.
