On the occasion of the International Children’s Book Day celebrated today on April 2, the Children’s Room “Amalia Aubry de Eidson” of the Great Public Library of Lima will develop an interesting program of cultural activities.
The activities started at 10:00 am, local time, with the reading of a message presented by the International Organization for the Youth Book (IBBY) that this year has been prepared by the writer Inesse Zandere, a native of Latvia, who has been titled “Books make the smallest things big”.
Then, an outdoor reading in the Colonial Patio took place, where children shared a series of books on various topics.
“At the same time, the activity “Coloring Peruvian Traditions”, sponsored by Comicteca “Galilea Ramírez R.” will be carried out. Through the story, children will learn to recognize the importance of the Traditions written by Ricardo Palma.”, explained Andina News Agency.
Afterward, there will be a “Crafts and creativity workshop”, where children will develop their imagination and creativity. All of the activities will culminate at 3:00 pm with a narrative of stories by Maritta Carrión, an outstanding oral narrator, who will tell the children the tender and moving story of Viringo, a Peruvian puppy that lived in the times of the Moche culture.
The International Children’s Book Day is celebrated since 1967, commemorating the date of birth of the great Danish writer Hans Christian Andersen, author of stories for children, such as: “The ugly duckling”; “The Little Mermaid”; “Tom Thumb”; ” The invisible suit of the emperor”; “The girl with the matches”, among many more.
