TD Summer Reading Tents
Held each summer in major cities and in 150 Indigenous communities across Canada both on and off reserve, TD Summer Reading Tents is a great way to get kids reading all summer long. These tents give kids and their caregivers an opportunity to sit back and read books in parks and at community events such as Toronto’s TD Salsa on St. Clair and a ceremonial pow-wow at the Marymound Family Day.
A program of Frontier College, reading tents help reduce summer reading loss by keeping kids active and engaged when they are off from school.
As a sponsor of First Book Canada, TD funds the First Book Canada Marketplace.
TD Canadian Children’s Literature Awards celebrate excellence in children’s literature by rewarding the best literary work by Canadian authors for children aged one through 12.
This week-long event features 30 children’s authors, illustrators and storytellers touring Canada to engage in 400 reading activities with over 28,000 children and their families.
In collaboration with Univision and TLN, this innovative program allows TD to expand its ongoing commitment to children’s literacy to young Latinos and their families, providing additional literacy support to help newcomers to Canada.
