A Photo is Worth a School Author Visit

 With the Telling Tales App Photo Contest

This year winners clicked and snapped their way to win! We asked people to submit creative and fun photos that featured a favourite reading spot. Congratulations to Wendy Rose of St. George – she is the grand prize contest winner! She took an adorable picture of her son and their dog. Her son’s elementary school, St. George-German Public School, will get an exclusive “Telling Tales Author Experience” this fall with author Lisa Dalrymple!

“At Telling Tales we know how important it is to expose children to stories, and introducing them to authors can help spark their own creativity,” said Susan Jasper, Telling Tales Founder. “These young students have the opportunity to meet an author, listen to her read, learn a few tips and most importantly – be inspired!”

There are so many wonderful reading spots, whether it’s with a friend, on the porch, or just before bed. Participants simply had to show us their favourite place to read using the FrameIt! feature on the Telling Tales App, which is generously sponsored by Cogeco. Enjoy these book nooks from our contest winners:
