September 8 is International Literacy Day

Tomorrow is International Literacy Day.  If you can read and write, you may want to help others do the same.  How?  Oh so many ways:

*team up with a bookstore to donate a book a month to your local elementary school,

*leave a good book that you’ve finished at a bus stop (it may spark a life-long love of reading in a stranger),

*volunteer to read to a child at your local elementary school or library,

*read a story to an elder who struggles with reading,

*donate to CODE Canada or another organization that helps promote literacy.

The question isn’t what you can do, and WHEN and HOW.

Choose to make our world a better place.  Support literacy today!

    Hi Sheryl

    I contacted you a while ago regarding my first book, Blowing Bubbles. It is now published! I even have my own website although I have yet to determine how to best add things to it.
    I would love to get a copy to you in the hopes that you might review it or add it to your website.
    Many thanks

    Greetings – Sheryl,

    I am a Northern B.C. school counsellor, Mom and new author (!!!). I have been trying to contact you by e-mail but I appear to be somewhat technologically challenged. I would love to send you my new book Blowing Bubbles for review and would appreciate it if you could contact me via e-mail. Many, many thanks.
