Public Service Announcement 

Tell Me a Story promotes family literacy 

Tell Me a Story is a Government of Nunavut program that provides books to babies. This “first library” promotes family literacy by introducing children and families to books of all kinds, and helps children develop a love of reading and storytelling. 

A series of culturally-relevant books in Nunavut’s official languages is available to all newborns across the territory. Books will be sent to Canadian Prenatal Nutrition Programs (CPNPs) in each community and distributed to parents. 

For communities without a CPNP, please contact your community health representative. 

For more information, please contact the Early Childhood Education division at 867-975-4866.
