The Koffler Centre of the Arts is currently running a series called 'Bookmakers' that allows parents and children to discuss books over breakfast. Designed for children ages seven and under, the series provides a new way for families to bond over literature.
The Bookmakers series is a free event held at Toronto's Artscape Youngplace. The event consists of informal readings and book presentations from authors of influential children's books. These authors then lead creative writing and drawing activities to help children come up with their own stories. During the event, families are invited to enjoy breakfast treats from the Coffee Public café. The idea is to create a welcoming and informal atmosphere for parents and children to explore the world of literature and creative writing.
The event help parents foster a love of reading at an early age by giving children a chance to interact with the stories they are reading and the authors who wrote them.
