With PRAESA at the Children & Books opening ceremony at Skansen

Today the representatives of PRAESA kicked off the day by participating in the opening ceremony for the Children & Books programme days at Skansen. They talked to moderator Simon Törnqvist about the joy of reading and about PRAESA’s work. Ntombi Mahobe gave the children in the audience some useful tips on how to become good readers, and they were also taught how to greet their friends in xhosa.

Then our laureates took a walk up to Bragehallen, to be impressed by the winning contributions in the competition A world of books (En bok i världsklass)!
