The Month of Good Children’s Books, as the largest regional celebration of the youngest readers, in the city library Rijeka 2020 gathers together a series of creative and educational workshops, walks, book games and guest appearances.
The Month of Good Children’s Books is a literary event which includes a series of reading activities. It is intended for children, as well as all the adults included in their development. The aim of this event is to draw attention to the importance of the choice of children’s books and to familiarise children and the people bringing them up with examples of good children’s books and the authors who pass on positive messages to the children. The event has been held since 2012 under the title of The Week of Good Children’s Books.
In 2020, this Week becomes The Month of Good Children’s Books, wherein the end of an era is marked and a new one begins – the Stribor children’s department moves into the Children’s House!
Within the programme, there are book games and quizzes, book presentations with their authors (writers, illustrators and translators), storytelling, readings, discussions, workshops with the developmental aim of experiencing stories, reader debates, painting, reader research, visual experiences and exhibitions.
A special hiking-reader event called Everyone into Stribor’s Forest! gathers together families and all walking fans and children’s stories in a joint activity which since spring 2011 has been regularly organised in the spring and autumn by the Kamenjak Mountaineering Club and the Rijeka City Library.
