A workshop led by writers and painters from Vietnam and Denmark for children to discover literature from the two countries is taking place in Hanoi on Saturday.

The program, held at Hanoi Library, celebrates the tenth anniversary of the establishment of the Vietnam – Denmark Cooperation in Children Literature project,according to the Vietnam News Agency.

The event allows children to read, watch animations and take part in a painting contest with the help of experts, painters and writers participating in the project, including painter Tove Krebs Lange.

The Children Literature program was established in 2006 with an aim to give Vietnamese children access to innovative literature developed by Vietnamese authors and illustrators.

As children’s interest in literature is growing, and foreign books and cartoons are becoming increasingly popular in Vietnam, the Children Literature Program works to provide further support to the development of Vietnamese children’s literature.

It also helps strengthen the capacity of Vietnamese authors and illustrators as well as the use of children’s books in education in schools and within the family, the Vietnam News Agency quoted Nguyen Thuy Linh, from Kim Dong Publishing House.

A publisher that specializes in publications for children, Kim Dong has cooperated with the Hanoi Writers Association and the Danish Writers Association to support the development of Vietnamese children, with a focus on capacity development of Vietnamese authors and illustrators.

Over the last ten years, the program has held eight writing competitions through which some 4,000 stories and cartoons have been created, while serving as a bridge between Danish and Vietnamese authors.
