Let's All Read Together

Top of page

Let's All Read Together is a kit for parents and children 5 to 9 to encourage reading at home. The NFB's award-winning Talespinners Collection is the inspiration for this material, which is built around four of the tales, all on this DVD.

The other components in Let's All Read Together are the four books upon which the films are based and an activity guide with fun learning and craft activities to go along with each story.

Christopher, Please Clean Up Your Room! is a spirited tale about a cool kid with a very uncool bedroom.

From Far Away is about a little girl from a war-torn country who leaves for a better, safer place in Canada.

Lights for Gita is about an 8-year-old girl whose first Divali celebration in Canada is threatened by an ice storm. Divali is the Hindu Festival of Lights.

Roses Sing on New Snow tells the story of a creative young chef, Maylin, who works in her father's restaurant in a Canadian Chinatown.
