According to this responsible, the activities aim to encourage children’s reading, developing in children the habit of reading, as well as boosting the library.

“As the saying goes, best to bend while it is a twig and, according to Monteiro Lobato, a country is formed with men and books then child and book should always be together (…), if we start this way from an early age the country will be better because we will have responsible critical men and women able to continue with the future towards the development of the country” she stated.
