TVOKids Book Tour


The TVOkids Book Tour supported by TD Bank will be hitting the road this March Break! 

Join us on Monday, March 11 for an exciting morning of reading and crafts!

A TVOkids Host will read and share an excellent collection of books that will introduce you to new places and characters that are out of this world!

This year, we will be reading two books: the TD-selected Grade 1 book, Rebecca Bender’s Giraffe and Bird and one of the TVOkids chosen Book Club books! Attendees will also have the chance to meet and take a selfie with one of the TVOkids hosts!

Plus, you will receive a special TVOkids gift bag to take home, which will include a copy of the TD selected book.
