Children's author Robert Munsch could read at your library!!

ABC CANADA Literacy Foundation just launched their annual Munsch at Home Contest that could mean Robert Munsch right in your library!

The contest, which runs until December 11th, gives Canadian families the opportunity to write a creative story together in hopes of winning a private home visit from Robert Munsch.  The winning family will also get to choose a local library, school or literacy group to receive a public reading by Mr. Munsch.  Promote the contest to families in your library and you could receive your very own story-telling from Robert Munsch!

The Munsch at Home contest runs in celebration of Family Literacy Day, an annual initiative developed by ABC CANADA Literacy Foundation and Honda Canada to celebrate parents and children reading and learning together and to encourage Canadians to spend at least 15 minutes enjoying a learning activity every day.  Thousands of Canadians across the country participate in this initiative with their families, and in their communities every year.  Last year, more than 119 000 Canadians read together to break the Guinness World Record for "Most Children Reading With An Adult, Multiple Locations."
