The unveiling of covers for 10 new children’s books took place on Sunday at the Krishibid Institute Bangladesh in Dhaka. 

The books were published under a project of Room to Read, a non-profit organization. The endeavour was funded by United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) and received assistance from World Food Programme (WFP). 

Some of the books are “Badol o mosthokonna” (Badol and the mermaid), “Koli ar Dholir golpo” (Tale of Koli and Dholi), and “Ding o Titing” (Ding and Titing). 

Acting secretary to the Ministry of Cultural Affairs Abu Hena Mustafa Kamal attended the event as chief guest. 

He said: “I applaud this endeavour by Room to Read. There is an acute lack of creativity inspiring children’s books in Bangladesh, and they are addressing the issue. I hope that Room to Read will collaborate with the Ministry of Cultural Affairs someday.” 

Rakhi Sarkar, country director of the organization, said: “We are collaborating with USDA and WFP to fulfil the needs of quality education for children in Kutubdia and Ukhiya in Cox’s Bazar.”

Education experts, as well as officials from many government and non-government organizations, were present at the event.
