September 8 is International Literacy Day; a day to highlight the importance and impact of literacy skills on individuals, communities, and societies. According to HRSDC in 2003, 20% of Canadians had very poor literacy skills (level 1). Our literacy skills impact many activities in our day from grocery shopping to reading instruction manuals. On this important day, take the time to reflect on the many ways you use your literacy skills and pick up a good book. Reading is one of the best activities that you can do with children to develop their communication skills, so share the joys of reading with your loved ones, too!
