    The Costa Rica News (TCRN) – The Fantastic Hakawati is a book that contains nearly 100 stories that will be read by more than 50,000 elementary school students across the Costa Rica.

    In order to encourage reading, the book represents the first phase of a project which promised 100,000 copies of the books to be delivered to various institutions and school libraries.

    This book is composed of Costa Rican images with the current reality, combined with educational content according to the curriculum of the Ministry of Public Education (MEP).

    Juan Diego Rios, fifth grader at the Omar Dengo School in Barrio Cuba, said that reading is very important to learn and to continue to succeed in life.

    According to Leonardo Garnier, Minister of Education, the delivery of such books to students is to continue the promotion of reading from an early age that is being promoted in the MEP.

    For Tania Devoto, representative of Great Productions, delivering the book to elementary school children is part of the Latin American goal of providing one million books. As for the name “Hakawati”, it refers to the name of storytellers in the past.

    Meanwhile, Mishelle Mitchell, corporate director of Institutional Relations of the National Bank, said the organization supports such initiatives on behalf of children and they encourage the habit of reading.
