It has been another successful Spring session for the Edmonton Literacy C.O.W. Bus. We would like to say thank you to all of our participants, whether you visited the C.O.W. bus once a week or once a month. We looked forward to your visits and appreciated being incorporated into your routines. A big shout out to all the Mom’s, Dad’s, Grandma’s, Grandpa’s, babysitters, and caregiver’s that came to learn and PLAY.
Thanks for reading to your little ones, letting them read to you, doing puzzles, engaging in all kinds of fun activities, participating in the stories and playing pretend. You are your child’s first and most important teachers, so thank you for trying and doing your best.
Over the program year, 22 new babies were born to our families and paraded on the bus. We will see 58 bright shiny faces head off to preschool or kindergarten in the fall and they will truly be missed.
This session we have given away more than 200 books for our Lending Library prizes — we put participant’s names into our draw when they routinely check books in and out. We have also given away around 100 donated books to our families.
We hope to see you again in the fall and hopefully there will be some new faces as well.
