kidsREAD is a nationwide reading programme aimed at cultivating the love of reading among children aged 4 to 8 who are from less privileged families, so Primary 1 and 2 students are more than welcome! Each session spans 1 hour where children are engaged in a fun and interactive programme by trained volunteers. They are told stories and involved in story-related activities that spark their imagination and creativity.

The reading experience continues at home, with postcards to update parents about each session as well as activities provided to promote parent-child bonding and grow their love of reading.

Interested? Contact us at kidsread@nlb.gov.sg and we will get in touch with you!
