2019 National Day of Reading
On Tuesday, November 12, students across the country celebrated the CSF’s 14th Annual National Day of Reading, a day dedicated to inspiring a love of reading in children. This year’s book selection was Mr. George Baker by Amy Hest. This tender picture book tells the tale of Harry, a young school boy, and his meaningful relationship with his 100-year-old neighbor. The book explores the topics of learning to read, lifelong learning and the beauty of inter-generational friendships. To nurture and motivate budding readers, all CSF school partners received a link to a special book narration by Mrs. Candy Carson. In the book, students discovered learning to read can be difficult. Mrs. Carson’s enthusiastic narration reinforced the book’s theme and the importance of learning and developing this vital skill. In addition to viewing the narration, many school partners hosted special guest readers. These reading role models took time out of their demanding schedules to encourage children not just to read, but to have fun while doing so.
