The Children’s Book Bank of Toronto, Canada is a charitable organization designed to support children’s literacy by providing free books and literacy support to children in lower income neighbourhoods. We learned about it from our good friend and podcaster, Sage Tyrtle, in an email she sent us offering to help record an interview with founder Kim Beatty. We managed to convince her to do more than that.
On this edition of Just One More Book!!, correspondent Sage Tyrtle of the QN Podcast introduces us to The Children’s Book Bank.
By the way, Sage’s QN podcast is definitely for adults, not children, and frequently includes strong language and political views.
