Support Children's Books! All About Literacy

We’re thrilled to announce that fourteen 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 by Room to Read Cambodia, Vietnam and Sri Lanka, as well as from our Indonesia-based Accelerator partner. These books were written in Bahasa Indonesia for beginning readers  in partnership with Mizan, Kanisius, Bestari, YLAI and Litara. To commemorate the launch, students from Sekolah Indonesia Singapura will conduct a storytelling performance. The publication 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!
