On Family Literacy Day (Jan. 27), Kids Can Press hosted a special breakfast book launch for David J. Smith and Shelagh Armstrong’s picture book This Child, Every Child at its new home in the Corus Quay building on Toronto’s waterfront. The event was attended by representatives of the ONEXONE foundation, which has partnered with Kids Can, and will use 50 per cent of the profits from the book to send children’s books to earthquake-ravaged Haiti.
