Books are a precious commodity for children in Laos, especially in the remote areas where Give Children A Choice builds preschools. Books boost a child’s learning potential, they stimulate imagination and play, they provoke curiosity and discussion, they provide inspiration, thought and reflection, they are extremely important for literacy skills and language development. Books = KNOWLEDGE.
Give Children A Choice has a total of 45 preschool classrooms in Xieng Khouang and Luang Prabang Provinces. They need new books and we need your help to provide them. We need $2,250. to provide a set of 36 books plus alphabet and animal flash cards to each of our classrooms. Thanks to Lao Emerald Friends and others we have $1,000. to start. Please help us raise the remaining funds. A donation of any amount is appreciated. A series of Aesop’s Fables cost $20., a storybook collection cost $20., flashcards cost $10. The complete set cost $50.
These books are published by Meedee Books, they are written in Lao, English and Chinese.
Thanksgiving and Christmas are the perfect times to give the gift of reading to the children in our preschools in Laos.
