Robert Munsch: Canadian children’s author, Dad, assistant professor, Member of Order of Canada, creator of “The Paper Bag Princess”, “I Will Love You Forever”, “I Have To Go Pee”. Yes, THAT Robert Munsch. I had the great opportunity to sit down with him at the Ontario Science Centre recently and discuss one-on-one writing tips for kids and the importance of family literacy.
Having survived a stroke in 2008, his speech is somewhat slowed but his enthusiasm for literacy is as strong as ever. As honourary chair of #FamilyLiteracyDay (an initiate by ABC Life Literacy) he is the perfect spokesperson to encourage families to read together everyday.
