A book project sees the distribution of 9 000 books at ECD centres across SA

# The Growing Readers with Books project has distributed up to nine-thousand books at Early Child Development centres in Gauteng, KwaZulu Natal and the Western Cape. The initiative, aimed at ensuring direct access to books for young children, was launched last year. Book Dash’s executive director, Julia Norris, says book sharing is more than just reading to a child, it is interactive, follows the child’s interest, and encourages and praises them for participation.
