David’s message is direct and clear. He leaves students wanting to make reading a part of their everyday lives:

Television entertains - it does not enrich lives. Stories and books entertain and teach valuable life lessons. In addition, they require listeners and readers to use our imaginations. This makes us all smarter!” –David Bouchard

Through Native flutes, storytelling and his award winning books, David directs children to the source of the best stories: their Grandparents, their teachers and books.

He explains the background and history of the Native flute and of his Métis sash. He tells a story through which he demonstrates how stories are richer than television. David teaches that reading is not for a select few, but for everyone.

Find one book you like. Get hooked on one book. It’s as simple as that…just one book at a time!”

Parents are Welcome!
