As summer winds down, the Alberta Prairie C.O.W. (Classroom on Wheels) Bus shifts into high gear! Many preparations have been made for our fall visits – everything from purchasing new bus tires to putting together a wall of Legacy Library boxes.
The bus begins the month with a trip to Cypress County where it will stop at Taber, Irvine, Ralston, Seven Persons, Schuler, Acadia Valley, and Oyen. Bentley and four communities in Flagstaff County are also on our schedule for September.
We are really looking forward to meeting with families across the province and sharing family literacy activities and ideas with them. One example is a matching game booklet, made from an old calendar!
A Legacy Library, a collection of 50 books for children ages 0 to 6, is left behind in each community we visit and includes a number of new books. Some of our new titles include: My Heart is Like a Zoo by Michael Hall, Baby Touch and Feel Park by DK Publishing, Little Noisy Trucks by Barrons Publishing, Cranes by Aaron Frisch, and ish by Peter H. Reynolds.
Please check out our AB C.O.W. Bus website for the remainder of the 2014 schedule. We look forward to visiting with you soon!
