Homecomin’ 2019

A few of the Kids Can Fly staff and volunteers attended “Homecomin'”, which is the bi-annual conference for Dolly Parton’s Imagination Library in Tennessee this past week.

With over 150 attendees, the week was filled with information workshops, collaboration, inspiration and a love for this amazing program!

We had the opportunity to learn about current research on the impact of reading on a child’s brain and also what effect screen time has as well

We were also able to learn from leading experts in infant mental health and hear about the exciting things that other communities are doing with the Imagination Library program.  2 of the authors who have books in the North American and UK Imagination Library shared their inspiration and artistic processes for creating these much loved books.

Thank you to the Dollywood Foundation for organizing this time of learning and inspiration!  We are so excited to bring what we have learned back to the communities of Brantford and Brant County!
