Celebrating I Love To Read Month with the Blues & Moose

by Tyler Vitt - Tuesday, Feb 09, 2016 at 2:37pm

February is I Love To Read Month, and McNally Robinson is proud to be teaming up with the Winnipeg Blues and the Manitoba Moose to celebrate literacy in our schools and community.

Throughout the month, the Winnipeg Blues will be visiting schools across Winnipeg to exercise both the minds and bodies of students with their Read and Run program. Players from the Blues will be reading to classes, answering their questions about hockey, and then leading each class in a run. Each school will also be entered in to a draw to win a donation of books from McNally Robinson for their library.

Meanwhile, the Manitoba Moose will be celebrating with their Stick to Reading initiative. Students and teachers from Winnipeg schools can enter for their chance to win a visit from Moose players, where the players will interact with the students and read to them in their classroom. For more information about how schools can enter, visit the Moose website here.

The Manitoba Moose will also be accepting donations of new or gently used children's books to give to schools and community services. The donations can be dropped off at our Grant Park bookstore, and for each donation you will receive a buy-one-get-one-free voucher for tickets to the Stick To Reading Moose game on March 28th, as well as a ballot for a chance to win a signed Josh Morrisey jersey.

Thank you to the Winnipeg Blues and the Manitoban Moose for taking such a keen interest in supporting literacy and helping to foster a better future for our students. McNally Robinson is eager and proud to sponsor their cause.

VOYAGES - Saskatoon Writing Contest Winners

by Allison Currie - Friday, May 01, 2015 at 1:32pm

Congratulations to the award-winning author's of this year's Grade 5/6 VOYAGES Writing Contest! We all had a wonderful time at the awards gala last night as the winning stories were read aloud, and prizes were provided through the generosity of Scholastic Canada.

Felicitations to all those who entered and a big thank you to Jennifer A. Nielsen for her comments and encouragement!

First Place: Jaqlyn G. Ai

"Wow - I did not expect that twist ending, very cool! I especially love the way you used time in that story, of how you make me constantly worried that the time is going to run out at any second." - Jennifer A. Nielsen

Second Place: Ozayr Raazi

"This was a very exciting story. It felt a little like a Lord of the Rings style of story, right on that epic fantasy level, and it was interesting that it all turned out to be a dream." - Jennifer A. Nielsen

Third Place: Katherine Chang

"This feels like a great start to a wonderful story. Stories set in the future can be tricky because you have to consider what about the world will change and what will be the same at that time. I thought you did a great job with that - with the hover truck and digital readers, but also a suitcase that zips shut too. I wish there were more of this story I could read!" - Jennifer A. Nielsen

Honourable Mentions: Sophie Rock, Brett Stoura, and Kaylee Turgeon
