Munsch at Home
Posted on Tuesday October 27, 2009 at 01:16PM
ABC CANADA Literacy Foundation recently launched the annual Munsch at Home Contest, a fun contest where families get to write a creative story together in hopes of winning a private home visit from Robert Munsch! But that's not all;the winning family will also get to choose a local library, school or literacy group to receive a public reading by Mr. Munsch. The contest runs until December 11 and is open to all Canadian families.
The Munsch at Home Contest runs in celebration of Family Literacy Day, an annual initiative developed by ABC CANADA Literacy Foundation and Honda Canada to celebrate parents and children reading and learning together and to encourage Canadians to spend at least 15 minutes enjoying a learning activity every day. Thousands of Canadians across the country participate in this initiative with their families, and in their communities every year. Last year, more than 119,000 Canadians read together to break the Guinness World Record for Most Children Reading With an Adult, Multiple Locations.
