To celebrate Family Literacy Day on Jan. 27, I’m offering a free download of “Reading Revival,” from my new album “Walk ‘n’ Roll,” until Jan. 31 to encourage families to visit the library and read their favourite books!
I wrote “Reading Revival” and “Don’t Judge a book by its Cover” for my tours of the Okanagan, Fraser Valley and Vancouver libraries this past summer. I was inspired to write a song about some of my favourite books from childhood to get kids excited about reading. Charlie and the Chocolate Factory and Winnie-the-Pooh are classics that I’ll be sharing with my daughter when she’s a bit older.
What are some of your favourite children’s books? Do you read them to your kids?
So, if you’re looking for something to do with your kids this week, visit your local library and read some books! I’ll be playing at Team Finn’s Finntastic Adventure on Jan. 23 at 3:30 pm at Highlands Elementary, the Clearbrook Library’s 5th Annual Literacy Fair on Jan. 29 at 12:30 pm and Mount Seymour’s Snow Day on Jan. 30.
