Reading Together Romania
A few years back one of my husband’s graduate students shared with me about a friend whom she knew in Romania who started a weekly library day in her home and is now spearheading a group called Reading Together Romania (Citim Impreuna Romania – CIR).
Kids Books Without Borders has been able to contribute books to Brandi, to help her grow her home library, both for homeschooling and for her Reading Together Romania. Brandi and I have gotten to know each other via email. We love to share new books we’ve discovered. She is as crazy as I am (maybe more) about children’s books and it’s been great to get to know her. She has also been a constant source of encouragement to me. I can’t wait to someday meet her in person !
I have had several families living overseas who have shared that they would love to start a weekly library day in their home. A few weeks back, I asked Brandi if she would share some tips for starting a weekly reading group. She was recently asked to do an interview for a Romanian website (focused on activities for children). I would like to share that interview with you. I hope this interview will inspire you to do something similar wherever you are. It all started with one box of books and a small group of moms and children coming together to read.
