Reading for Pleasure has many literacy and non-literary benefits. It enhances language skills, can increase empathy, improve relationships with others and wellbeing throughout life. The National Literacy Agency continues to promote a love for reading, and in conjunction with PBS has launched the television programme ‘Naqraw Flimkien’.

During the programme, which is intended for children between the ages of 3 to 11, books are read in an interactive manner and in an appealing environment by various fictional characters to motivate children to read more. The programme is aired on TVM from Monday to Friday at 2.55 pm with a repetition every Saturday at 8:30 am.

The videos may be accessed from the playlist ‘Naqraw Flimkien’ from
