Kirsten Deasey, Early Learning Teacher with School District 46 on the Sunshine Coast, gave a spirited talk on Dolly Parton's Imagination Libary. 
Kirsten explained how its is a vital part of the District's SPARK program for all pre-school children up to age five. This program includes Strong Start, which focuses on fun activities related to reading and KinderSpark which targets the pre-kindergarden age group. This coordinated groups of programs are targeted on sparking a love of reading at a very early. Education research shows that such reading involvement is a prime determinant of later success in school and in life.
