take 20Sunday, January 27th is Family Literacy Day is the largest national family literacy initiative in Canada. Every year on Jan. 27, families and communities across the country and throughout B.C. celebrate this special day!  This link has some great ideas on how to “Take 20 minutes” to make learning together part of your everyday. Engaging in literacy activities as a family improves a child’s skills and also helps adults keep their skills sharp. I hope you find some time this Sunday, January 27th to try some of the fun ideas to get your family started!  Happy Family Literacy Day!
