What’s New with Babies, Books and Bonding?

Call for Expressions of Interest - Children's Book Illustrator

The Babies, Books and Bonding team of the Northern Healthy Communities Partnership is excited to release the attached Call for Expressions of Interest for Children’s Book Illustrators.

The Babies, Books and Bonding Action Team of the Northern Healthy Communities Partnership is seeking an illustrator to contribute illustrations to the development and publication of a children’s board book intended for children approximately 18 months of age. Featuring the story of a northern Saskatchewan family as they gather and prepare food for a family meal, the story is tailored to a northern Saskatchewan context, promotes healthy eating and resilience-building family rituals and caters to younger children than most Aboriginal language books currently available. The book will be published in three versions: Cree and English, Dene and English, and Michif and English.

Illustrators interested in creating and contributing artwork for the book are encouraged to share their interest with the team based on the details included in the attached Call for Expressions of Interest. The deadline for expressions of interest is September 30, 2016.

 Questions and Expressions of Interest should be directed to:
