The National Dutch Read Aloud Days are held from 25 January till 5 February. During this event reading aloud to children is encouraged. Reading aloud has many benefits to reading comprehension, especially vocabulary, sentence construction and cohesion.
Every year a winner for the best picture book is chosen, this year the winner is ‘But first I caught a monster’ (Publishing house Lemniscaat) written by Tjibbe Veldkamp and illustrated by Kees de Boer.
Biblionef will send this book along with other books from the top 10 to Kralendijk, Bonaire,
The National Dutch Read Aloud Days is a project from Stichting Lezen, organised by Stichting CPNB.
