Word on the Street is a free, annual festival that celebrates literacy in Atlantic Canada. Presentations and exhibitors include local authors, poets, illustrators, spoken word artists and entertainers and more!
This year Halifax Learning was honored to take part in the "Adopt an Author" program as sponsors for young, established authors in our province.
We are thrilled to partner with Jeremy Holmes and Justin Gregg from the East Coast Music Award winning group, The LIttle Ditties. Jeremy and Justin are the co-authors and illustrators of The Fancy Goat and have offered to donate 20 copies of this fun, free-spirited and above all FANCY book! We cannot wait to add this title to our books and offer copies to our upcoming Student of the Month at each of our locations.
The Fancy Goat is published by Outside the Lines Press, a family owned, independent published located in Anitigonish. Outside the Lines specializes in, "Books that make you smile." and the Fancy Goat does just that.
"Encouraging children to explore their creative side and reaffirming the value of letting kids be kids when it comes to self-expression, Fancy Goat emphasizes that creativity is vital to a child’s intellectual development."
