Since 2002, the Read to Me! program has been providing a bag of books and reading resources to the family of every baby born in Nova Scotia. Since our launch we have given out almost 80,000 Read to Me! bags. The Read to Me! bag is delivered at the hospital bedside in all eleven Nova Scotian hospitals that provide maternity services. To honour the culture, and celebrate the language of the Mi’kmaq population in Nova Scotia, Read to Me! launched a Mi’kmaq version of the Read to Me! bag in 2009. The Mi’kmaq Read to Me! bag contains the first baby board book in the Mi'kmaq language “Weska’quelmut Apje’juanu” along with “Welcome Song for Baby” by First Nation’s writer Richard Van Camp and other reading resources for families. The Mi’kmaq bag was developed by an advisory committee composed of members of the Mi’kmaq community,including an elder. It celebrates the Mi’kmaq culture and helps to preserve the Mi’kmaq language by nurturing new generations of Mi’kmaq speakers. To enhance the bag and strengthen the impact of the Mi'kmaq language we would like to create a CD of Mi’kmaq music, songs and stories specifically for the Mi'kmaq Read to Me! bag.
