World Read Aloud Day with Nal’ibali


2 February 2022 marks Nal’ibali’s 10th World Read Aloud Day celebration. In celebration, Nal’ibali have written a special story. This year’s story “A party in the park” has a celebratory theme and includes some of Nal’ibali’s beloved characters like Gogo, Neo and Hope and is available for FREE in all 11 SA languages, as well as Chichewa, French, Lingala, Portuguese, Shona and Swahili.

This year the focus is on families reading and telling stories together, which can happen anywhere, anytime. Reading together is bonding, brings families closer, and it’s fun!
