McNally Robinson Booksellers and Scholastic Canada invite grades 5 and 6 students from Manitoba and Saskatchewan to enter our “Voyages” writing contest.
Tell us about a voyage you have been on or want to go on in an essay or story between 600 and 1000 words. A trip to the moon or to the lake, a visit to a place that felt like home or getting lost in a strange place that gave you the creeps, a walk along the highway or to some place in your mind, the choice is yours. Pick whatever moves you.
We are very pleased to welcome our special guest judge this year: Jennifer A. Nielsen, author of The Ascendance Trilogy.
Entries will be accepted at McNally Robinson Booksellers in Winnipeg and Saskatoon until
11:00 PM Friday, March 27, 2015. Winners will be announced on Friday April 17, 2015.
If you have any questions, please contact the kids service desk, or click here for more information.Categories: Saskatoon, Winnipeg, Contests and Giveaways, Ongoing Kids Events in Saskatoon, Ongoing Kids Events in Winnipeg
February was "I Love To Read" Month, and in celebration of this the Winnipeg Blues Junior Hockey Team went to schools all across Winnipeg to read to students. Not only that, but they also got the kids on their feet and led classes on runs. Great support for both literacy and fitness!
As part of the Read & Run program, each school visited was put into a draw to win a big batch of books. During the Blues' game versus the Dauphin Kings on February 28th, the winner was selected: Joseph Teres School! Congratulations to them - they will receive over $750 worth of books for their classrooms and library!
Thanks to the Winnipeg Blues for running such an incredible program. McNally Robinson was very proud to support them all the way.Categories: Store News, Winnipeg
In the fourth book of the Penderwicks series, the Penderwicks are growing up and their family is expanding. Rosalind is off to college, and their new sister Lydia brings lots of new energy to the family. And Batty has started a dog-walking business to pay for a newly discovered talent.
If you like the first three books in the series you will definitely like the fourth. I would it a 9 1/2 out of 10.
