We know the the brains of babies develop fast during the first years of life. You can help that brain development by reading books with your small child.
We’ve teamed up with the Yellowknife Public Library to encourage all NWT families to read 1000 Books Before Kindergarten. If you post photos of you and your child reaching 100-book milestones on Facebook, you’ll be automatically entered into draws with prizes awarded twice each year.
A Storysack is a fun resource that encourages parents and children to read together in an interactive way.
Storysacks usually contain a high quality picture book, props or costumes for acting out the story, an audio recording of the story, a non-fiction book and an idea card with activities to do together. You can also make Storysacks for oral stories or legends. Parents and children use the characters and props to act out the story as they read together.
