The Awesome Project
I think it's important for every child to have the opportunity to foster a love of reading. So, I'm excited about "The Awesome Project", a literacy initiative that will provide elementary school-aged children with their very own first book!
Author Neil Pasricha, whose "Awesome" book series has sold in the millions visited students across Southern Ontario to read from Awesome is Everywhere (his latest book for children) in October. Also, each school received copies of the book in addition to 1,500 new books and a $1,000 grant to purchase books and Kobo eReaders through the First Book Canada Marketplace!
How Can You Be Involved?
Each time a new customer in Canada buys their first digital book from Kobo until November 30th, Kobo will donate $5 to First Book Canada. Each new Kobo customer (who signs up through this link & purchases a book before Nov.30th) will also receive a $5 credit that will be applied to their first eBook purchase!
How do you encourage reading at your house?
