The Week of Reading to Children is held every first week in June. Schools, nurseries, libraries, mothers’ centres, literary cafes, the general public and others throughout the Czech Republic can participate in the literature celebrating event. This programme across different towns and villages brings new inspiring ideas on how to entertain children and make them happy either by the spoken word or by a song or a play. The idea spreads like rings of ripples on the surface of water.
An inauguration launches these already traditional weekly national celebrations. A lavish programme accompanies the inauguration with the presence of eminent personalities in culture and sport. The event is always commenced in Czech cities, such as Prague, Brno, Olomouc, Zlín, Ostrava, etc.
