Bookmobile shares love of reading Van brings authors to schools2017.11.16
AN organisation that promotes reading has launched a reading event for early November. Bring Me a Book is hosting the Parade the Love of Reading activity. This year, a Bring Me a Bookmobile van is touring 25 kindergartens and primary schools and also the PMQ in Central.
Angela Leung (梁鳳儀) of Bring Me a Book said that the group hopes to help children enjoy reading through school and community activities. Children’s books from both local and foreign authors, such as Chris Haughton from Ireland and Hong Kong illustrator Adeline Ko (高佩聰), are available via the van.
Whenever the van stops at a school, an author will share the story on how he or she got inspired to write the book and there will also be a quiz game. At PMQ, volunteers and authors would read the books out loud and host arts and crafts workshops.
