Rainforest of Reading in Grenada

What: Tour of Gift Days
When: October 1 – October 26
Where: Santa Lucia, Grenada

On September 30, RAINFOREST OF READING, a book festival featuring 12 award-winning children’s books from Canada, planted its roots in schools throughout the Eastern Caribbean starting in Saint Lucia and Grenada. The three-week event engages 4,000 Grade 3 students in over 100 primary schools. It is the largest literacy initiative ever undertaken in a region still reeling from infrastructure damage caused by Hurricane Ivan (2006) and Hurricane Tomas (2010) and the economic impact of a global recession.
