Series: Books in the Home Program
Authors: NWT Literacy Council
Collection: Learning Materials
The Northwest Territories “Books in the Home” program is based on the belief that parents are children’s first and most important teachers. Throughout the program, parents study a children’s book each week, then take the book home with them.
This resource manual is one of two developed for the program and features 10 books that the authors describe as “classic” ones, including works by such authors as Robert Munsch, Sandra Boynton, Eric Carle and Dr. Seuss.
The authors have developed activities and resources for each of the books. Each book kit includes an overview; a warm-up activity; a group discussion topic; handouts for families; information on the author; and a snack idea for the week.
The authors have also included tips for running the program successfully.
