Reading, writing and re-learning

A little boy who loves reading is being taken by his grandmother to all of Toronto's 99 public libraries - today it's number 44.

Jerry Wilzinski joined a creative writing class expecting gentle and constructive critisism. What he got made him see red! Krishna Gopikrishna came to Canada with excellent English but unfortunately it was too good and he had to relearn it. Denise Clark's problem with English was the tricky and treacherous letter "H".
