Family Reading Program @CLC Kenya

Reading with your older children and reading aloud to your younger children stimulates their imagination and expands their understanding of the world.

The fun day will include:
1. Virtual reading picnic for families

2. Storytelling centered on books and reading culture

3. Reading challenge for the whole family

4. Book gifts and awards.

5. Display & sale of great reads from Kenya.

This event (held annually) helps highlight the importance of recognizing the power of books and the positive impact our country will continue to have by being a reading nation.

What a better strategy than to start from the family set up, where life is first nurtured for the first 20+ years of a human being.
