During the annual Voorleesweek, Iedereen Leest highlights the importance of reading aloud. This stimulates language development, concentration skills, creativity, and the social skills of children. Moreover, reading aloud is the best way to nurture lifelong readers. The event takes place during the last week of November, in Flanders and Brussels. Iedereen Leest provides support to child carers, teachers, librarians, and other people who read to children, with tips on how to do this and books that are easy to read aloud. Voorleesweek focuses on children between the ages of 0 and 6 years, in addition to suggesting books for children and young adults (6-15 years) and older. Reading to older children – and adults! – also contributes to nurturing lifelong readers. The campaign is traditionally kicked off by Her Majesty Queen Mathilde of Belgium, who visits a school, nursery, nursing home… where she reads a book aloud.
