“Welcome to Canada” Children’s Literacy Program

“Welcome to Canada” Children’s Literacy Program | TLN Connects

In response to a groundbreaking report on Toronto schools and student achievements that cited children and youth from Latin American backgrounds encountered greater education challenges by as early as grade 3.

Together with Canada’s largest children’s book publisher, Kids Can Press, TLN distributed a series of books to selected schools throughout the Toronto District School Board, the Toronto Catholic District School Board, community centres and libraries as a welcome kit to young newcomers of Hispanic descent.

The books feature titles such as “The Kids Book of Canadian Geography” and “The Kids Book of Canadian History” and foster learning about Canada including its geography, history and multiculturalism.
