Thought this was cool - For all the Robert Munsch fans out there...

National contest will see lucky Canadian family get exclusive visit from author Robert Munsch
PUBLICATION: The Guardian (Charlottetown)
DATE: 2005.10.06

Beloved Canadian children's author Robert Munsch will make a special visit to one lucky Canadian family this January, thanks to a contest being organized by ABC Canada Literacy Foundation.

Munsch is honorary chair of ABC Canada Family Literacy Day, scheduled for Jan. 27, which encourages parents and their children to read and learn together. This contest gives any family in the country the chance to have him visit their own Family Literacy Day party on Monday, Jan. 23, to kick off a week of FLD activities.

"I can't wait to find out where I''ll be going and with what family and friends I'll be celebrating Family Literacy Day," says Munsch in a recent news release.

To enter the contest, families only need to fill out a form, describing what activities they are planning for their FLD party. Entry forms are available on the ABC Canada website, and must be received by ABC Canada by 5 p.m. EST, on Dec. 9.

The contest winner will be announced the first week of January 2006. "Robert's been a wonderful honorary chair for us, and there's nothing he likes better than to share stories with children and their parents," says Christine Featherstone, ABC CANADA President and chief executive officer.

"This contest provides a unique opportunity for a family and their friends to meet Robert face−to−face."

Family entries (one entry per family) will be judged for the originality and creativity of the activities they plan to have during their upcoming Family Literacy Day party.

Anyone who would like more details on the contest or who is looking for the official entry forms should visit the website:− People are also invited to contact ABC Canada by phone at 416−442−2998 or 1−800−303−1004, info@abc−
