Documentary on literacy & school library underfunding – Read Between the Lines

May 18, 2017 at 10:05 am Leave a comment

Check out this 35 minute doc created by the Chapters/Indigo Love of Reading Foundation, titled Read Between the Lines (also available in French). It examines the long term effects of poor literacy skills and underfunded elementary school libraries on children. It tracks the application by Fairview PS in Nanaimo BC for grant money from the Chapters Love of Reading Foundation and includes a retrospective  look at Ogden Community School in Thunder Bay that was the recipient of the award 10 years ago. Interviews include, amongst others,  Robert Munsch and Neil Gaiman.  You’ll like the music, too.

Keep  your kleenex handy – this deliberately tugs the heart strings!  What do you think?
