Storytime Trail line-up

Rethink literacy learning spaces.

Take your literacy lesson and students for a walk! Our interactive outdoor book walk program features 24 English and 3 French diverse stories by Canadian authors on essential issues. Support your CRRP efforts by respecting, reflecting and leveraging the power of stories of all students and their families.

With each purchase, you'll receive lesson plans written by certified teachers, resources, author videos and access to Special Events.

Students can join our "Good With Words” campaign and be inspired to take meaningful social action. And don’t forget to engage with our Youth Ambassador team, ready with all sorts of extension activities for readers.

This year, take your instructional practice one step further on the Storytime Trail.
