Themed “Opening the book – Drawing dreams’, the festival will draw the participation of many publishing houses and communication units.

An online book festival will be held on e-commerce website, while a poster exhibition on Covid-19 prevention and control will also take place.

Many seminars and conferences, with different themes on “writing books for children”, “Children in the 4.0 era: watch, hear and read what?” and “ways to read books with children”, are expected to attract parents.

Children will enjoy various practical activities such as a painting contest on children’s dreams and taking photos with their families.

Notably, the “changing books for trees” programme will contribute to spreading the message of environmental protection and reading culture among the people. The books gathered at the event will be presented to children who are being treated in hospitals.

On the occasion, a range of practical activities will be held on Hanoi Book Street every Saturday and Sunday from July 18 to August 30, aiming to create a playground space for children during the summer holidays.
