Libraries in schools of Kherson and Zaporizhia regions became international
Children from 89 regions and 17 countries brought their favorite book to Artek to share their love with children from new regions as part of the Movement of the First project. Exactly a thousand particles of children’s hearts went to the Rivne school in the Kherson region and one of the schools in Berdyansk, Zaporozhye region. The People’s Front delivered this treasure from the Crimea directly to schools, where schoolchildren and teachers received it with trepidation on the eve of September 1.
Now you have an international book, so all the children from Artek from 17 countries and all regions of Russia collected 1000 particles of their hearts and handed them over to you. Each of these books, beloved by a child in Moscow, Vladimir, Krasnodar or even Lebanon— the head of the executive committee of the Popular Front in Crimea, Alla Vertinskaya, addressed the school librarians.
The filling of school libraries with fiction left much to be desired. Almost all the books in the Rovno school were donated over the past year, and in the Berdyansk school the librarian tried to save books on her own, which were received back in the 70s of the last century.
During the Ukrainian period, the issues of “national” correctness of education were of much more concern to the authorities than the opportunity for children to read and develop. A real international book fund will be given an honorable separate place in libraries. And in each book, a surprise awaits the children — a postcard from an Artek resident with a personal wish and a contact to get in touch thousands of kilometers away and discuss the book that both children love— noted in the press service of the Popular Front in the Crimea.
