In partnership with First Book Canada and Love Child Organics, Brampton Library launched a program that gifts every new baby born at Brampton Civic Hospital a free copy of the book Tap the Magic Tree, written by Christie Matheson, published by HarperCollins and specially selected by city librarians.
Along with the book, Brampton’s new families are given information about other recommended books to share with baby, information about Brampton Library programs and resources and a voucher for baby’s first library card.
On Monday, August 19 at Springdale Branch Library held a Baby Storytime, where Tap the Magic Tree was featured. Following the story time, the partners spoke about the A Reader is Born initiative, offered Love Child Organics food samples and shared free copies of Tap the Magic Tree to take home. It was pointed out that it was never too early to read together to support healthy brain development.
Love Child Organics hopes that their partner in spreading the love is First Book Canada, will provide access to new books for children in need. Through partnerships with leading publishing companies, First Book Canada secures high quality titles that help to create enriched learning experiences, transform the lives of children and elevate the quality of education. Brampton Library’s seven branches are open daily at 10:00 am, online 24/7 at www.bramptonlibrary.caand on social media @bramptonlibrary. -CINEWS
