The Publish It!
The Carousel is a one-of-a-kind website that serves the literacy needs of families, schools and communities. It is an easy-to-use and cost effective way to write and print your very own books! The sky is the limit when using the online Publish It tool.
Publish It! is a highly successful and popular program for parents, children and community members and is now in this easy-to-use online format. You will be able to make your own picture books about family and community events, people, hobbies, pets and favourite activities. Illustrate them with photos you have taken especially for your book or scan photos you already have.
Once completed, your book will become part of the online Library. You will also be able to print a copy of your book.

Not sure if you want to create your own books? Consider this. It takes a village to raise a reader and a writer! When a community writes together, they help encourage children’s writing and let children know writing is valued. When parents and community members write for and with their children, they become positive role models children want to copy.
When the writing is published and shared it becomes a way to help to preserve traditions, pass on information, and spark interest in the people, activities and events in a community. The books become a treasure trove of family and community life.
Writing can be a shared family experience, just like story time, and can become one that is looked forward to by everyone in the family.
