Welcome to Publish It!

Publish It! Children and Parents – Partners in Learning is a family literacy program concept aimed at improving students’ motivation to read and write by increasing parent participation in children’s literacy learning. The project design involves families in the writing, self-publishing and home and school use of high-interest, locally produced non-fiction books. Parents and children collaborate on the writing and also learn how to illustrate and publish their book, using digital photography to illustrate them. The program is delivered in person at the various sites or through our new online version. Selected books are available for viewing by visiting the Publish It! Online Library.

Several schools have created their own presses: Cambridge Elementary (Swingset Press), Gaspereau Elementary Grapevine Press), Lawrencetown Consolidated (Riverside Press), and Wolfville Elementary (Mudcreek Press).
