I Love To Read Month

February 1 - February 28

We’re celebrating diversity this February at the Children’s Museum for I Love To Read Month!

Join us on weekends to enjoy story times, crafts, and activities focused on books that reflect upon what makes us special and unique. We’ll be sharing stories written by authors from BIPOC and LGBTQ2S+ communities, and we will explore topics that help us to understand diverse perspectives – all while celebrating our love of reading!

*BONUS!* Be sure to record what you’ve read as you help our friendly I Love To Read caterpillar grow around our Welcome Centre, and enter a draw for your chance to win an I Love To Read gift basket valued at $150!
