Children's Author Sarah Tsiang Visits GREC

Kingston children's author Sarah Tsiang presents her new book to GREC students
GREC students are very thankful for the wonderful opportunity presented by First Books Canada and BMO.

First Book Canada organized an author visit with Kingston author Sarah Tsiang and gifted our grade 1-3 students copies of Sarah's newest children's book Sugar and Snails. Sarah shared her experiences as a writer and presented her new book Sugar and Snails. Sarah's presentation was engaging, interactive and inspiring! We learned about her writing process, what inspires her, as well as how she researches and prepares for her new books. Sarah did a wonderful job explaining all of this at a level our grade 1 to 3 students could comprehend and relate to, and our students were so excited to meet, ask questions and learn all about Sarah's experiences.

BMO graciously donated $1000.00 for the purchase of books for our kindergarten to grade three students. We have witnessed so much growth in our students' reading this year and know having access to these books will further foster their love of reading and encourage them to continue reading over the summer months.

We are so grateful for this experience and celebration of reading day!
