“Reading not only has tremendous power when it comes to fuelling the development of all aspects of language ability.”
Delbert Riley is a Canadian First Nations leader of Chippewa of the Thames. He was chief of the National Indian Brotherhood (known today as the Assembly of First Nations) from 1980-1982.
In partnership with the Aboriginal Babies and Beyond Coalition, SOAHAC, Libraries in Middlesex County and the City of London, Family Centre’s and EarlyON Centre’s, are helping to make sure that every family with an infant, toddler, preschooler has access to some literacy “remedies.” Your Prescription for Literacy is an initiative in which patients with children under the age of 4 are given a coupon that they can take to Oneida HeadStart, Enji-Maajtaawaad Early Years, Munsee-Delaware Nation Community Centre, N’Amerind or At^Losha to receive an Aboriginal Book Bundle of their very own. This comprehensive resource includes a collection of quality board books, an Indigenous Children’s Music and community-based resources for parents.
It is through frequent meetings with parents who have babies and young children, that you have the opportunity to play a significant role in promoting not only the importance of literacy for a baby or child’s success, but also for sharing simple and easy ways that literacy can become a part of daily family life…right from the start!
