Travelling Book City 2015

The Travelling Book City project began with the intention of fostering reading among children, through interactive and fun programming with a special little nook for reading, theatrical plays, storytelling, a space for drawing, and more.

The Book City is a thematic theatrical space whose home city is São Paulo (SP), but in partnership with Instituto International Paper, the Travelling Book City project was started, aimed at providing experiences for other municipalities where IIP operates. The project has visited the cities of Mogi Guaçu and Ribeirão Preto, in Sao Paulo; and the city of Três Lagoas, in Mato Grosso do Sul.

The next city the project will visit is Suzano (SP), which is in the São Paulo metro region. The project will be held from May 18 to 29, at Suzano Shopping Center, with over 7,000 children expected to visit.

Municipal public school students, from 2nd to 5th grades, and students from schools pre-determined by the Municipal Secretariat of Education, as well as children of International Paper workers at the packaging unit in Suzano will be able to take part in activities free of charge.

In addition to showing the importance of reading to kids, the project’s approach enchants visitors through playful and educational activities so that reading really becomes a daily part of kids’ lives.
