Picture Books for Everybody

Literacy with DIE BUCHPATEN

DIE BUCHPATEN (English: THE BOOK-GODPARENTS) have made it their mission to support and encourage socially underprivileged children. We distribute picture books in Switzerland and Germany to children from socially underprivileged families and children from of refugee families. Our main activity is to organise and hold participation readings where we read stories, draw pictures and play with children – and hopefully their parents, too! We support the literacy of the children through the dialogic reading in participation readings. And because the parents are also present, they take the experience home and keep supporting their children’s development.

What We Want to Accomplish:

DIE BUCHPATEN aim to
• strengthen the self-confidence of socially underprivileged children,
• rouse their fascination in books an stories,
• support their progress in literacy (both spoken and read),
• give the children and their parents the possibility to include themselves in society.

Who are our offers aimed at?

DIE BUCHPATEN hold their participation readings everywhere where we can reach children and their parents: kindergarten, primary schools, community centres etc. But also companies and other groups of people are welcome to book a reading.
We are interested in a sustainable cooperation. The more regularly DIE BUCHPATEN can visit the children, the more successful our support of their literacy becomes.
