February Reading Events

I Read Canadian Day

Canada is home to phenomenal writers of world class stories, and February 17th is the day to celebrate them.

 I Read Canadian Day will take place on February 17th. This is a great time to show our pride in our home grown talent.

Consider celebrating by:

  • displaying Canadian books around your school
  • hosting a Drop Everything and Read time dedicated to Canadian authors
  • have students bring their favorite Canadian stuffed animal to school and read a Canadian story to it
  • read a wacky Canadian poem to your school
  • host an author’s visit

The ideas are endless!
