Six Years and Six Incredible Books!
Congratulations to One Book, Many Schools for an amazing program that promotes family literacy. Literacy is one of the priorities for Red Deer Public Schools - it is so important because literacy is the foundation for all learning.
What a great idea to have students from many of our schools read together with their families. This year, more than 5,000 parents and children will be reading the same book at the same time. It’s great to have you be part of that!
We’ve been able to take part in reading some amazing books over the last five years which has taken students and their families on some incredible journeys. That is the beauty of reading. Great stories to take you to some amazing places, ignite the imagination and share many good values and lessons.
This year’s book is a fantastic one - The One and Only Ivan, by Katherine Applegate. There’s no doubt families will be taken on another great adventure.
Enjoy your times reading together. We hope you continue that tradition by picking up more books and reading as a family.
