The 8th Week of Reading to Kids within the project Visegrad Reads to Kids

Our aim is to raise awareness about the importance of reading aloud amongst all four Visegrad countries. We want to promote reading aloud through campaigns amongst parents and stakeholders (schools, libraries, family centres, etc.). In the framework of the project, we will organise and promote The Week of Reading to Kids within the project Visegrad Reads to Kids which will be focused on children and children’s literature.

The ceremonial Inauguration will be held in Prague on the 28th of MayThe 8th Week of Reading to Kids within the project Visegrad Reads to Kids will take place from the 4th to the 10th of June 2018.  During this week there will be organised events in all four of the participating countries, including: days of reading, intergenerational activities, meetings with writers, as well as little workshops for children and parents. These activities will create a base for an international network focused on the idea of reading aloud. All experiences gained during the organisation of the event will be used in our future activities.

The project is co-financed by the Governments of the Czech Republic, Hungary, Poland and Slovakia through Visegrad Grants from the International Visegrad Fund. The mission of the fund is to advance ideas for sustainable regional cooperation in Central Europe.
