Reading to children from an early age is an acknowledged factor in early childhood development as it not only strengthens the bond between adult and child but helps little ones develop cognitive, auditory processing and conversational skills.
LitWorld, a nonprofit addressing global literacy, and human rights have declared 5 February 2020 World Read Aloud Day.
Not only does the Paper Manufacturers Association of South Africa (PAMSA) have a vested interest in all things paper, it is also a member of the South African Book Development Council which seeks to increase access to books, especially indigenous language, and diverse content literature. Over Four hundred children from all parts of Cape Town are celebrating World Read Aloud Day at the Company Gardens today.
Parents and teachers also partaking in celebratory of #WorldReadAloudDay.
