Coinciding with the end of National Book Week, Buk bilong Pikinini (BBP) officially launched its’ very own ‘When I Grow Up’ series of books in Port Moresby on Friday 7th of August.
The series of books looks to encourage young readers to identify and work towards achieving their dream jobs from an early age.
In launching the series on behalf of the Education Department, Deputy Secretary – TVET & UNESCO, Mrs Annemarie Kona said that the books are a bold step taken towards awakening the minds of children to start dreaming of what they aspire to be at a very early age.
“The “When I Grow Up” series of books are the best motivations to give to young children as a head start to get them thinking about their future dreams.”
Mrs Kona congratulated BBP for bringing the reader series to fruition and commended the efforts of the organisation through its’ Early Childhood Learning Centres which have proven to be effective in giving children a great head start before entering the formal education system.
A total of 6 readers were launched on Friday under the Series with a further 7 planned to be launched in early 2022 adding on to the Buk bilong Pikinini’s library for mini professionals.
The “When I Grow Up” series of readers will be available for purchase at local Buk bilong Pikinini centers located nationwide.
