PEI Literacy Alliance

We're giving the gift of reading! Our Free Books for Kids program aims to get books into the hands of Island children, especially those in need. Books in the home are a great influence on the literacy levels of the family. Research shows children have a better chance of becoming fully literate adults if reading is encouraged in the home. Even a little bit goes a long way – having as few as 20 books in the home still has a significant impact on propelling a child to a higher level of education, and the more books you add, the greater the benefit. You get a lot of 'bang for your book'. This Giving Tuesday we will be ordering new books to give to families through this year's Christmas Hampers from our local food banks.
