My biggest reason for supporting Sherwood Park Elementary is because my sister Pamela McLeod - a teacher/librarian at the school continues to be an inspiration and powerful advocate for sparking a love of reading in every child she meets. When it comes to children's literature, Pam is the most knowledgeable person I know. She LOVES reading, and it shows. She has inspired hundreds of children to embrace a lifelong passion for books, and a love of reading. The students of Sherwood Park who have Pam in their lives are the luckiest kids in Canada. Now, I'm going off to read before bed - Pam suggested I read Mimus by Lily Thul. I'm riveted!
