“World Read Aloud Day” Event in Smakiyah

A ‘Read Aloud’ activity was organized in Smakiyah (Karak) at the Maktabati library with 30 children from grades 5 and  7. First, each child selected a book from the shelves of the library and read a couple of pages out loud to the other children. He/she then asked a question based on the text that was read. Once everyone had their turn, it was time for a quiz based on the book, ‘I am an Arab and This is My Country’ (by Huda Al Nashef). The goal of the event is to promote the joy of reading and to encourage regular visits to the library. Volunteers Carolin and Luzan did a great job organizing the activity, and enjoyed discovering the Karak Castle afterward.
