"Everyone has a voice deep down inside them, a voice that says “shine”.
Some have loud voices, while some have quiet ones. Some people’s voice
is so quiet they never get to hear it, while those that do may choose not to
listen. Unfortunately, only a few decide to act on this voice, the stars
who influence others to listen themselves."Find your Little Voice

We also wanted to send a special thank you to Sylvie McEwen, a local French teacher, who has been passionately pushing for Little Voice’s translation since day one. Having translated Little Voice for use in her own classroom, Sylvie’s translation of our text has inspired us to fulfill our own dream of making Little Voice available to many more children!
We are very excited for this next step in our journey and look forward to sharing with you ‘La Petite Voix’!
Reading can help children surpass their own expectations and overcome obstacles. When children find the right book at the right time, the world opens, and everything becomes possible.
In conjunction with Scholastic’s “Open a World of Possible” reading initiative and Usher’s New Look BIGGERTHAN Words initiative, the “BIGGERTHAN Booklist Challenge” gave students in grades 3–8 the opportunity to actively connect with and share the power of reading in their lives.
Students were asked to create a list of three books that have made them feel “BIGGERTHAN”—books that had inspired them to take on challenges and which ultimately had a positive impact on them—and have their teacher or parent share it on social media using the hashtags #BIGGERTHAN and #sharepossible.
Today, Scholastic & Usher’s New Look announced their TOP 10 #BIGGERTHAN Book List!
With 2015 ahead of us, we can’t help but think of our own list of resolutions.
New Years is a perfect opportunity to think about what we want to accomplish in the year ahead. It’s a chance to think of our goals, both big and small, and a chance to create a plan of how we can attain them. It’s also an opportunity to think of ourselves and how we can improve our own outlook, our health, our intellect, etc… As well as a chance to think of others and how we can give back, offer support and volunteer.
We are very excited to be hosting our first Ottawa book launch tonight at Stella Luna Cafe! Bundle up and stop by between 6:30 and 9:30pm to pick up your copy of Little Voice!
Keeping with the festive season and the snow underway, we thought what better way to get excited than with a poem:
