The Children’s Literature Festivals held throughout Myanmar are aimed at sharpening the mental aptitudes and perspectives of children, refining their creativity and enunciation, familiarizing children with literature, instilling reading habits, and creating a happy environment for children. —Muse District IPRD (Translated by Zaw Htet Oo)
