National Tell a Story Day on April 27th each year. It is to encourage people of every generation to tell stories. Stories can take many forms such as reading books, creating stories from your imagination, recreating memories as well as sharing ones knowledge and wisdom through life experiences. It is definitely a great way to pass traditions from one generation to the next, an excellent way to educate with history lesson and tales from the past. It is also a great source of entertainment.
Spending time telling stories with family, friends and loved ones is a great way to bond, spend quality time, reminisce and even learn!
Put Me in a Book!

2009, Book , 31 pages:
Summary/Review: "On their way home from a field trip, the class meets a famous writer who says he is looking for a kid to put in a book. Hailey volunteers, so the writer flattens her out, folds her up, and stuffs her in. But Hailey feels folded and scrunched and trapped and stuck, and asks the kids to get her out of the book. They try all kinds of things, but nothing works, until finally they have an idea, and turn the tables on the famous writer! Put Me in a Book! was inspired by a project that a grade two classroom in North Bay created and mailed to Robert Munsch ― now they really ARE in a book!"
