The Learning Exchange Storytime Readers, Enza and Vidya, are visiting daycares in the Laval area starting May 30th to have an interactive “Under the Sea” themed reading and Rainbow Fish sing-along with the children. Students of Souvenir Elementary School will have interactive reading visits featuring stories geared to each grade level.

Thanks to project funding from #RLPRE and book donations from #FirstBookCanada, each child will receive family literacy information to bring home to the family and a new Scholastic or First Book Canada book.

As well, we have 200 Kindergarten Kits made up of books, wonderful resources and materials for families with children starting Kindergarten in September 2022.
