READ Saskatoon has launched a new product called Booktivities.

As part of literacy month, Booktivities is a way for families and kids to come together and have fun while learning and reading.

READ Saskatoon executive director Sheryl Harrow-Yurach says the launch is just in time for the holiday season and is a means to give back to local authors that support READ Saskatoon.

“We have been very fortunate over the years to have western Canada authors support our work,” said Harrow-Yurach. “This is a chance for us to give back to them at the same time create some fun learning packages for families and children.”

“Booktivities is such a great way for children and families to learn from and celebrate western Canadian authors and participate in some fun learning activities,” Harrow-Yurach said.

Harrow-Yurach says booktivities enhance literacy throughout the province and add another means of revenue to support the agency’s cause, free programming to families and children.
