STORY TIME: LES SOUVENIRS D’HONORÉ, as told by Marie-Christine Toupin
Saturday, November 10, 2018, at 10 a.m.
Community Centre (1301 Rue du Bois)
In French, reservation required
Les souvenirs d’Honoré, as told by Marie-Christine, with excerpts from songs taken from the book.
A majestic elm takes us on an emotional journey through crazy and melodic stories based on the memories of three of his tree friends: Boubou the shea butter tree from Senegal, Evdokia the larch tree from Russia and YinYang the weeping willow from China. Through stories centred around ecological issues, you will experience a taste of culture and music from a variety of countries.
A special activity will take place following the story during which participants will have to locate the trees’ countries of origin on a world map while Marie- Christine sings Je bouge, je remue! and invites everyone to get up and enjoy a holistic dance.

Lire et faire lire program
The joy of reading shared by children and volunteer seniors.
Lire et faire lire is a true form of active citizenship! The association offers an intergenerational reading program through local branches across Quebec. The simplicity of the program is what makes it truly appealing. During the academic year, seniors volunteer to read to children in one of their local schools once a week. Each volunteer is assigned its own group of 2 to 5 preschool children, kindergarten children, 1st graders or 2nd graders (4 to 8 years of age).
The program’s mission can be summed up in one key word: ENJOYMENT. The enjoyment of having someone read you a story, of reading yourself, of sharing and creating a bond.
Lire et faire lire has two main objectives:
- Foster a love of books and reading in children
- Build intergenerational connections
