IBBY-Yamada 2022: Zimbabwe

IBBY Zimbabwe: Story Reading Flyers for reading promotion at schools and at home.

To promote reading in schools and at home, IBBY Zimbabwe proposes to create pictorial story reading flyers - practical story cards in two formats for grades 1-3 and 4-7. For the youngest children, a one page story with picture will be created and laminated back to back for durability and easier cleaning and filing. The older children will receive a longer story over two pages with a picture at the top, also laminated. The first set of 20 stories is intended for April 2022 and there would be three sets in total. An earlier similar project made creative stories, the themes this time will emphasize non-fiction topics, based on consultation with schools and teachers.
