The Reading Program was developed in March 2020. It is an hour-long weekly/biweekly virtual book reading and discussion for a small group of children, divided by age and ability. The sessions will be run by Sasun Ananyanin of  St. Petersburg, Russia. Sasun is a great book enthusiast and a firm believer that reading is the best way to enlighten children. The aim is for these sessions to broaden children’s’ horizons as well as diversify their weekly activities to enhance their social and intellectual skill set.

The Reading Program is made up of three key things:

  • An enthusiastic and inspirational person leading the book club;
  • A great reading selection, that is relevant to the age group/audience;
  • A lively discussion.
