IBBY-Yamada 2022: Cameroon

Imagine my book, my universe II - a continuation of the 2021 project to develop a culture of children’s book in Cameroon

This continuation of the Imagine my book, my universe project of developing a reading culture in Cameroon focused on building children’s spelling, vocabulary and conjugation skills in French and English. The trainings took place in six of the ten regions of the country targeted at school headmasters, teachers and librarians. In addition to sharing experiences and case studies, tools such as the educational game “OrthoLudo” and Kamishibai paper theatre were introduced. “OrthoLudo” is a playful spelling game with question cards that can be used with smaller groups of children in the school libraries.
