Quick IRA update

Having a great time here in Toronto. It’s a great city. I’m only seeing a very small portion of it, but my hotel is right on the water, which is of course a great view, and we’ve eaten at a couple really great restaurants.

And then there’s the show itself, which is full of teachers and librarians. We’ve met several principals, too, and there a so many literacy coaches and people who work with teachers in some capacity or other. It’s been really great to talk with all of them about books and helping kids learn to read and increase their reading skills and enjoy reading.

I also met Alivina Ling of the Blue Rose Girls briefly, but I’m sure she was as busy as I was. Hopefully we’ll get a chance to chat! And if anyone else is at the show, be sure to stop by the Mirrorstone booth and say hi.
