Looking for some new titles to read with or for your child this winter? We have a special download for you at the end of this post!
Last year, Halifax Learning hired our first co-op student, Basel! This was through a program with Saint Mary’s University.
We hired Basel to help with our social media content creation. Aside from helping create relevant content that we could use to explain and elevate our program, we also decided to use this co-op opportunity to do something we've been wanting to do for a long time – research and create a children’s booklist to celebrate diversity, equity, and inclusion. Basel did an excellent job of this by breaking the content up into months and researching children's literature specific to different cultures. Basel has included books and authors from across the country, with a primary focus on keeping it local to Nova Scotia.
We are pleased to offer this curated selection of 39 books that will be educational and informative for young and old alike. The recommended reading includes:
- Black History Month
- Asian Heritage Month
- Jewish Heritage Month
- National Indigenous Month
- Pride Month
- Women’s History Month
- Mi’kmaq History Month
- Universal Human Rights Month
Along with a special mention of a book entitled “Hassan and Aneesa Love Ramadan”.
