The taste for reading is easy to catch! Be a role model for the young people around you by participating in the activities of the Week Read with Me.

Lis avec moi Week will be held from October 1 to 9, 2016. On this occasion, activities will take place in schools, libraries and bookstores, inviting the people of Quebec "to treat themselves to a moment of happiness by sharing a reading with young people aged 0 to 12 ”. 

The event has three objectives:

  • Gather children and adults around the books;
  • Showcase Quebec children's literature with the help of animations;
  • Allow children to be readers for life.

During the week, around thirty meetings with authors and illustrators will be organized across Quebec during this thematic week.


Read in class

Several suggestions educational activities to live in class are available on the website:

  • Promotion of an author or illustrator
  • Sharing favorites in tandem
  • Reading poems
  • Creation of a multilingual alphabet book
  • Collection of texts from an album without text
  • Treasure hunt from the blankets
  • Storytelling survey
  • Etc.

There are also three videos featuring reading fun tales.


Read at home (and win prizes!)

As part of the Read with Me Week, since Monday September 26, we can register for two competitions for the public and teachers.

Competition Love at first sight, For the young : "Do you have a favorite book and would you like to share it with us?" Write the title of your book and describe why this book is the best of all for you! "

Competition I'm in, for adults (family and teachers) : "Pledge to read with a child during Read With Me Week for a chance to win a gift of books, gift cards or one of the preschool or elementary school animation kits. "
