Books in the Home: Northern Books (2010)

The Northwest Territories “Books in the Home” program provides parents with tools to help their children with reading and writing. Each week, parents study a children’s book and take the book home.

This resource manual is one of two developed for the program and focuses on what the authors describe as northern books: ones about the culture and life in the North, many of which reflect First Nations, Métis or Inuit culture.

The authors have developed activities and resources for 10 such 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 suggestions for organizing and running the program.
