Crack a book - it's Family Literacy Day!

Set aside some quality time with a story or two.

Jan. 27 is Family Literacy Day across Canada - and it is also Family Literacy week.  

ABC Life Literacy Canada points out today, and this week, is meant to highlight the importance of literacy. 

Since 1999, it says, thousands of school, libraries and other community groups have taken part in the initiative. 

The group believes taking time every day to read or do a learning activity with a child is crucial to help with their development and improves parenting skills at the same time.
