Description

Parents strive to be an inspiration to their children, but what happens when children become an inspiration to their parents? Carey Rigby-Wilcox offers a powerful story about a boy and his dad and how they come to support each other in their learning. The lessons they learn take them well beyond their ability to read. This story reflects Carey’s own experiences as an adult with literacy issues and the parent of four children. Parents are their children’s first teachers and provide the foundation for their life-long learning. When parents struggle with literacy, frustration, fear and hopelessness can take over. Carey learned through her literacy tutor, that commitment and support are needed to help others. As Carey became more literate, she became more empowered and now she is an advocate of learning and an active partner in her children’s education.

Carey’s previous book My Mummy Couldn’t Read, which describes her personal challenges with literacy, was short-listed for the 2008 Saskatchewan Book Awards Book of the Year.
