Siman di Ban Lesa (SBL)

The Siman di Ban Lesa (The Reading Week) is our annual project that takes place at the end of the year to promote children’s books. As one would expect, the main objective is reading promotion and we organize a wide variety of activities that center around this.

These activities include the workshop “Writing children’s books at AVI level” (The AVI level is a measuring system for children’s reading skills and the level of difficulty of children’s books). They also include reading afternoons for children and visiting schools with authors and artists. This all makes it a very pleasurable week for everyone involved!
