Learning Journey: Carey Rigby Wilcox on SaskTel Max TV
Sometimes, when we are given assignments for documentaries, we discover that the story is bigger than just a story about an author... in this case, Carey Rigby-Wilcox is an inspiration that has not only overcome her challenges with literacy to become an award winning author, but she continues to help spread the word and support other learners from not just Saskatoon but across the country. This is a story to remember. - produced by Bamboo Shoots for SaskTel Max TV 2015
Carey Rigby-Wilcox created See a Book Take a Look to inspire children to promote literacy in people of all ages through her unique books.
Carey incorporates her important literacy messages within the pages of children’s literature because she believes that children are our world’s little messengers for change. Children are drawn to Carey’s enticing illustrations filling the pages of her easy-to-read books. Upon checking Carey’s books out of their school or public libraries, children will enjoy reading the stories on their own, and then practicing their early reading skills by reading out loud at home with their families. By reading Carey’s inspiring stories with their families about adult literacy, children are potentially promoting literacy to a staggeringly large population of adults who struggle with reading.
Since the 2007 publication of Carey's most popular book to date, My Mummy Couldn’t Read, See a Book Take a Look has gone on to continue creating and producing unique children’s storybooks that are used as encouraging resources and teaching tools to inspire children to promote literacy.
