We invite; bookshops, libraries, school children, parents, and others to be part of this event of great value addition.
The aim of this party is mainly to award wonderful children and encourage others who aim to be better in either their academics or in their non curricular endeavors; to enhance the reading culture among school children in Imo state; to make them experience the other side of learning rather than in their school classrooms. This year’s theme has been tagged ‘What to read and what not to read’ which will be addressed by a specialist in children on the day of the event.

We also encourage the children to bring their own art works or cardboard paper drawings to the event venue as beautiful art made by children will be rewarded accordingly.
The festival guide and details can be found on www.rafoundation.wordpress.com
