Sandra’s Favourite Kids Books

The Women’s Advocacy Voice of Edmonton meets at City Hall on the third Tuesday of every month. In many ways, it’s a regular committee of council with agenda items, and motions, and guest speakers. In some ways, we do things a little differently.

Every meeting, WAVE Chair Sandra Woitas reads us a story. Sandra is a former school teacher, principal, and will always be a skilled child educator. At the beginning of every meeting, Sandra opens with a children’s book and reflection questions. This sets a fun and positive tone. We have read some fantastic books in the past couple of years. Here are some of them. Most are carried by the Edmonton Public library and will be noted below. Many are available as read-alouds on YouTube as well.
