As we honor Indigenous Peoples Heritage Month, it’s important to have open conversations and encourage your children to ask questions about this heritage. Indigenous children’s books can be a great place to start. Plus, reading is an interactive activity that includes both you, the parent, and the child.
No matter your little one’s reading level, it’s never too early to start learning (or reading) about Indigenous history and issues.
