Teachers are spreading the joy of reading.

Kindergarten students from Greater Vernon to Cherryville have received books from the Vernon Teachers Association.

“We love providing the books for each little one to read with their family. It’s so important to plant that early seed,” said Lisa LaBoucane, VTA president. “It’s a tradition we’re proud to honour yet again. Retired teachers volunteer each year as a rule, to deliver the boxes of books to each elementary school.”

The books are selected by primary teachers while they are out shopping.

“Our goal, year after year, is for families to read together, to promote the joy of reading, a gift that gives forever,” said LaBoucane.

“So when your child or grandchild brings home their book shiny and new, be sure to thank a teacher for doing what they do.”
