We’re thrilled to announce that eight Room to Read books were selected as exhibition features in the Illustrator Gallery at the Asian Festival of Children’s Content. The Singapore-based event aims to celebrate and promote the creation and appreciation of children’s books and content, with a focus on Asian themes.
The titles were crafted through our Room to Read Accelerator program in Indonesia for beginning readers in partnership with Mizan, Kanisius, Bestari, YLAI and Litara. To commemorate the launch, students from Sekolah Indonesia Singapura conducted a storytelling performance. The publication of five of these book titles was made possible through Room to Read’s partnership with the IKEA Foundation and IKEA’s Let’s Play for Change campaign, which supports a child’s right to play and develop.
Since Room to Read began producing children’s books, it has published more than 1,300 titles in 19 languages-here's to many more!
