WELCOME TO TORONTO: A COLOURING BOOK
As the city of Toronto prepares to receive over 2000 Syrian refugees in the coming months, we are looking to extend a warm welcome.
Welcome to Toronto is a themed colouring book that will help newcomers become acquainted with our multicultural city. The book includes a beautiful collection of illustrations created by talented Toronto artists and designers, with English and Arabic text accompanying each image. Colouring is a therapeutic activity, which can ease stress and anxiety that many of these children may be dealing with. It is also a way to unleash self-expression, build confidence, and with directed imagery, can be a fantastic vehicle for children to learn about their new surroundings.
The book is published by Nicole Baillargeon, Andrea Pearce, Rafi Ghanaghounian, and printed by Keep6.
WE WOULD LIKE TO THANK our partners for making this project possible!
