Under their new organization, Rwanda Children Book Forum, Rwandan publishers and booksellers have organized the First Christmas celebration with Rwandan children with the theme: “A book is an awesome Christmas & New Year’s gift.”

This Christmas and New Year Children’s Book Fair comes as one of the ways to create a point of access for children’s books.

One of the pillars of Rwanda’s Vision 2020 is to build a knowledge based economy. It’s in this regard that Rwandan book publishers and book sellers have worked tirelessly to avail child appropriate books within the local context.

We would like to encourage Rwandans to come and bring their children to the first Christmas Book Fair on Friday, 9th and Saturday, 10th December 2016 and pick a gift for a child in your life.

The display profile of the book fair covers: All children’s books, text books for schools and colleges, children’s literature, fiction and non-fiction books, etc.

To make the events more meaningful, several ancillary activities such as face painting, storytelling and gift giving to children, which will also lead to an Award Function due in 2017.

Spending money on a book is investing in your child. Come one, Come all. Buy a book for a child , read a book for a child, let us celebrate Christmas while reading with our children.

The fair will open from 08:00 am to 7.00 p.m. for all our visitors at the Kigali Car Free Zone.
