Read to Me is creating a series of booklets to support parents and caregivers of newborns during the COVID-19 pandemic. Our first booklet has information on reading to your baby in the first three months, age-appropriate book suggestions, and fun rhymes to enjoy together. You will also find links to local libraries and bookstores, as well as online resources to enhance your reading experience with your baby. Click the images below to view or download the booklets.
We will be adding additional resources about reading to older babies and toddlers over the next few weeks.
If you recently gave birth to a baby in Nova Scotia and did not receive a Read to Me book bag in the hospital, please visit our home page to request a bag. We will make every effort to mail a bag to you when normal program operations resume.
