Reading ~ a gateway to another world

“Students will read if we give them the books, the time, and the enthusiastic encouragement to do so. If we make them wait for the one unit a year in which they are allowed to choose their own books and become readers, they may never read at all. To keep our students reading, we have to let them.”

Donalyn Miller, The Book Whisperer: Awakening the Inner Reader in Every Child

Give children the time and opportunity, during this time of supporting your child at home, to fall in love with reading. Let them read what they want. Let them explore their interests. Let them lead the way.

TLDSB has an amazing digital library resource for all students, staff and parents. It is called OverDrive and Sora – the same resource, named differently depending on the device you use to access. OverDrive has thousands of books in both e-book and audiobook formats for your child to access.
