The Program:

  • The C.O.W. bus is a friendly space for parents and younger children, zero to six years, to learn and explore fun new ways to add literacy activities into their daily lives.
     
  • At the invitation of local literacy groups, the C.O.W. bus tours rural and urban communities across Alberta participating in locally planned events. A visit from the C.O.W. Bus is an exciting way to promote family literacy.
     
  • Trained family literacy facilitators provide information on the importance of early language development and leave behind a small library of quality children’s books with each community.
