At present 43 primary schools in Malta and 9 primary schools in Gozo are hosting these programmes.

Each reading session features the sharing of stories from books as well as other interactive activities animated in such a way that stimulate the children’s interest and imagination.  These stories and the corresponding activities help the children to interpret, discuss and analyse stories in a critical way.  Reading sessions are held in Maltese and in English.
