I remember being excited as a kid every time I Love To Read Month (ILTRM) rolled around. This month was typically paired with Scholastic Book Fairs and my favorite...extra in-class reading time. ;)
Now as a bookstore owner, I find my passion for it is channeled more into the promotion of the love of the written word. However, this time around I got curious...how did ILTRM start, anyways? Is this a Manitoba thing or is this an "everywhere" thing?
So, with the help of ChatGPT, here is a summary of the history of ILTRM.
Enjoy! and... Thank you for reading!
