Welcome to Read to Me!
Read to Me! is a nonprofit early literacy organization that gives a free bag of books and literacy resources to every baby born or adopted in Nova Scotia. The bag is distributed at 11 hospitals in the province, at the hospital bedside within 24 hours of birth.
Learning begins at birth. By starting early with talking, cuddling, singing and reading to a baby, parents can help build a strong foundation of language, and along with it a positive association with books and reading.
When you sign up for our free E-tips service, you will receive 5 emails from Read to Me over your baby's first year.
You will receive your first email when you sign up, and the next when your baby is 3 months, 6 months, 9 months and 12 months of age.
Each E-tip is tailored to your baby's age and stage of development and includes:
- fun ideas on how to introduce books and reading into your baby's routine
- great book suggestions for your baby
