Munsch Mania at the Public Library
Prince George, B.C. -The Prince George Public Library celebrated Family Literacy Day today by holding its third annual Munsch Mania! reading event.
Kids aged 0-9 packed the Bob Harkins Branch to hear many of the well known stories of children’s writer Robert Munsch.
“Reading with your children makes an enormous difference and it’s so important we take 15 minutes a day to read with each other,” said Prince George-Valemount Liberal MLA Shirley Bond.
“Books can transport you to new worlds and you can learn things.”
Family Literacy Day was created in 1999 and is a national day of awareness to celebrate the importance of reading and engaging in other literacy-based activities as a family.
