TD Grade One Book Giveaway

It was an exciting week for the Grade One students at South Slope/BCSD.  Each of them received a copy of Mr. Zinger’s Hat written by Cary Fagan, illustrated by Dušan Petričić and published by Tundra Books. This book giveaway is organized by the Canadian Children’s Book Centre.


“The book is to be taken home by each child to keep and to read with their parents. This far-reaching annual book giveaway program, which provides over 500,000 books to Grade One children across Canada, is fully funded by TD Bank Group. The program is intended to encourage literacy and reading for young children and supports the Canadian Children’s Book Centre’s mandate of bringing great Canadian books to Canadian children and to promote a love of reading and a passion for books.”

First we read the book and then students received their own personal copies.  We hope families enjoy reading the book at home, too!
