Tansor elementary kids are saying “Good Morning, Canada” thanks to TD’s Grade One Book Giveaway!
A class of Grade One students at Tansor Elementary are proudly showing off their brand new book “Good Morning, Canada” by Andrea Lynn Beck, which they just received as part of the TD Grade One Book Giveaway!
Every Grade One student across Canada will be receiving their very own copy of this book this school year, thanks to TD Bank and the Canadian Children’s Book Centre (CCBC). This particular book was selected in honour of Canada’s 150th birthday.
“As the pages turn on bright scenes and changing seasons across the country, rhyming text cheerily greets the sights and sounds of a Canadian morning. From a pair of moose spied through an open tent flap at sunrise to a gaggle of Canada geese at a school bus stop, a morning game of shinny on an outdoor rink, and checking the sap buckets at a maple syrup farm, these inviting pages capture a familiar Canada that will delight young readers.”
In SD 79, many of our schools will be distributing the books to students during Canadian Children’s Book Week in May. If a child is in a Grade One split class (i.e. K/1 or 1/2) every child in the class will receive a book to take home.
Since 2000, the CCBC has given every Grade One student a free Canadian children’s book. The book is to be taken home by each child to be read with their parents, and is funded entirely by TD Bank Group. The program is intended to encourage literacy and reading for young children.
