The 2014 Kids Summer Reading Club (SRC) - themed "Funny Business" - is in full swing now!
The Kids SRC is designed to get children reading, with the use of a fun theme, posters, stickers, a reading record, bookmarks, completion medals, and novelty items. In addition each year they have a new designed website offering 7 quizzes (1 for each week of the program) word puzzles, and fun games.
This year's artist is Jeremy Tankard. Jeremy attended the Alberta College of Art & Design where he studied drawing and print-making. His early career focused on editorial illustrations for publications such as Time magazine, Fortune, The New York Times, Guitar Player, Royal Bank, and The Globe & Mail. However, when his daughter Hermione became a toddler, Jeremy found himself reading stacks of picture books and was reminded of the main reason he had wanted to attend art school in the first place - to create picture books!
A BIG thanks to BC Library Association for the opportunity, yet again. It's always a great experience working with you and so rewarding to be a part of helping our kids improve their reading skills.
