Over the past 10 years, more than 14,000 votes for the Regional Chair Early Years Niagara Literary Award have been cast across Niagara. In partnership with the Regional Chair and the Touch a Truck fundraiser for children’s literacy over 4,300 books have been placed in the community.
This award highlights the importance of Niagara’s youngest citizens by drawing attention not only to the value of reading with children in their early years when their brains are at peak development, but also to the need for quality books for this age group. The award also helps parents and guardians choose the right books for children from infancy to age six and to celebrate children’s authors.http://www.earlyyearsniagara.org/who-we-are
