As it is the summer holiday period of the schools, Yangon Book Street saw a rising sales in children books.
As preparations were underway to hold Children’s Literary Festival (Bago) children book publishers were being brought together and according to Ko Phyo of Sein Moe Yan Book Shop there were a total of 36 children book publishers.
Ko Aung Phyo and wife from Athoke Village, Yekyi Township, Ayeyawady Region who came to buy children books said, “Our son is a little older than one year and he still wouldn’t understand much if we read this book to him but at least he’ll repeat what we read and hopefully become interested in reading later.”
Today, Sunday, there’ll be book introductions by authors at 11 a.m., 2 p.m., 3 p.m. and 4 p.m. said an official at the Yangon Book Street.—Thant Zin Win (Translated by Zaw Min)
