Recreation: Festival of Reading in the Trees
The annual Festival of Reading in the Trees has once again brought together several hundred Monegasques. The festival, which has been organised by the association "Je lis, tu lis, nous lisons" (I read, you read, we read) since 2006, is a highlight of the year-round weekly reading sessions that take place in the Principality’s crèches and primary schools. The older members of the association spent an afternoon under the olive branches telling the children some great stories in order to impart a taste for reading. The festival helps to bring different generations closer together around a book.
