« I offer a book to a child »
Our first concern remains the reading skills of our young children. If we refer to the reading comprehension results revealed by the PIRLS 2016 international survey (Progress in Reading Literacy Study), our 10-year-old students are the lowest readers in the European Union and OECD countries. To draw attention to this huge societal challenge, ADEB organized for the first time in 2018, on April 23th (International Book Day), along with the youth and school editors, the operation « I offer a book to a child ». This event will be repeated in 2019.
Publishers at school
ADEB launched in 2016 its « Publishers in Class » operation. How it works ? A publisher goes to school, to introduce the students to the different facets of the publishing profession. What is a publisher ? What does copyright cover ? Paper book or digital book ? For who ? All the schools of the Wallonia-Brussels Federation. Priority is given to schools with a socio-economic index between 0 and 10. Interested? Please, contact us! Phone: +32 2 241 65 80 E-mail: firstname.lastname@example.org
