Rainforest of Reading in Montserrat, Grenada

What: Tour of Gift Days
When: November 18-28
Where: Santa Lucia, Grenada, Montserrat

Rainforest of Reading is a book festival featuring 24 award-winning children’s books from Canada, planting its roots in schools throughout the Eastern Caribbean: in Saint Lucia, Grenada, and Montserrat. The two-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.
