Online Book Reading of “Chuck in the City”
We are excited to start showcasing Indigenous Authors on our Online Book Readings. We wanted to start this series off with a special book for the youth. The recommended reading for this book is up to Grade 3.
In these challenging times, taking the time to read with children create connection and memories that last a life time. We encourage everyone to get the book before the date of the reading and follow along!
Chuck In the City — Chuck and his mom are heading to the city. Chuck has an exciting escapade as he befriends and provokes some furry, fourlegged city critters, dodges skaters, gets lost and then uses his wiles to find his way back home.
