Reading is vital for learning. It supports brain development, enhances cognitive skills and builds self-confidence. It stimulates creativity, increases vocabulary, and strengthens a child’s ability to focus, concentrate - and imagine! When a child starts school, their vocabulary is the most important indicator of later success in school.
By purchasing this gift, you have gifted a book to a child in Canada and Bolivia. You are supporting Calgary Reads and Bolivia Kids to promote and provide literacy initiatives - locally and globally.
Due to COVID-19 restrictions, many libraries, schools and educational programs are closed. Vulnerable children are disproportionately impacted as they are unable to access online learning resources and have few materials at home. In fact, many children do not have any books at home. Research shows the more books a child owns the better chance he or she will grow up to be a confident and enthusiastic reader.
