Rhymes, verses, word games and colorful picture books – these not only make the early years fun for children, but also form the bulk of language development. Supporting the development of language in early childhood is the goal of projects in Great Britain, the USA, Italy, France and Germany.
The Italian-speaking branch of the Swiss Institute for Children’s and Youth Media (SIKJM) launched the project Nati per leggere in 2006, following the Italian example. The Swiss-wide initiative of this project started in 2008, implemented by SIKJM and Bibliomedia Schweiz. SIKJM runs courses for librarians.
This project is run by The Swiss Institute for Children’s and Youth Media (SIKJM) (Switzerland).
