In late November a ceremony was held in Hanoi to award the winners of the Writing for Children Campaign.
The reward of innovative writers and illustrators of children’s books is part of 10 years of Danish support to Vietnamese children’s literature. Hundreds of interesting books and picture books for children have been published and distributed to children through the years. Child-friendly writing and illustrations are so important for the development of a child since they help shape his/her identity and imagination and are her/his very first connections with the outside world.
“Denmark is proud to have contributed to the development of Vietnamese Literature for children through our 10 years of co-operation with Kim Dong Publishing House. Across cultural differences, we have found ways to make magical books, which talks directly to children enabling them to comprehend and understand all kind of topics and human situations,” said Denmark’s Ambassador, Charlotte Laursen in her speech.
