Healthy Babies Board Bookes
Learning to speak and read any language is an important part of a person's identity. To help Anishinaabe children and their parents become familiar with the sounds and concepts of Anishinaabemowin, several non-profit organizations have come together and created three board books in two languages. You can find them in the Picture Book section of our Stories page.
