IBBY-Yamada 2008: Guatemala

Workshop for training teachers in reading promotion

The new IBBY section based at the Casa del Libro was especially worried about children's reading habits. They arranged several projects to promote reading, as Ventanas Abiertas (Opened windows), Lluvia de Libros (Raining books) and the project Formación de Animadores a la Lectura.  This project prepared professional people, not just teachers, with new theories and practical knowledge to promote reading. In this way, these adults are able to manage new future projects.
