Family Literacy Day, set for Jan. 27, was developed by ABC Life Literacy Canada to encourage Canadian families to spend at least 15 minutes a day enjoying a learning activity together.
This year's theme is 15 minutes of Fun, which can include all types of play that encourages literacy and numeracy development.
