Powered by Mom shares a Kumon Reading & Fun Prize Pack Giveaway ends 3/23 Canada Only #kumonreads
My daughter and I love to read whether it’s together or off on our own time. I remember growing up that my parents encouraged me to read and as a result I became an avid reader, until this day one of my favourite things to do is read a good book. I enjoy reading so much and saw how it helped me in school that I wanted to make sure that I fostered a love of reading with my daughter right from the beginning.

Before my daughter could even form words I would read and sing to her, and this is something I continued and nurtured to the point where she could read and sing to me. In fact even now some of our favourite things to do together are to sit down and reach a book or have some fun and sing. I can’t imagine us not having the joy of reading and singing in our lives.
That’s why I find it sad that more than 29 million children across North America who live in low-income households have limited access to age-appropriate books at home and attend schools with classrooms and programs that are often under-resourced.
To promote literacy in young children, Kumon and First Book Canada, a non-profit that provides new books to children in need, have joined forces. This joint literacy campaign will see the distribution of more than 10,000 books to schools and community based programs in Canada.
In line with this initiative, Kumon and First Book will host reading celebrations in February and March at high needs elementary schools across the country. Students will enjoy presentations from local children’s authors and illustrators and have the opportunity to read with Kumon instructors. Each student will also receive a brand new signed copy of the author’s book to take home.
To get started on this celebration we’re thrilled to host a giveaway filled with books and some other fun things like highlighters, pencils and more. This awesome prize pack is valued at $75 and includes items pictured above. Just enter on the giveaway tools below and GOOD LUCK!
