Digital reading for children (between 4 and 8-years)

Bilderbuchkino (Picture book cinema) is a form of reading aloud and presenting picture books.

The interactive form of reading involves pictures and animations whereby the children look at an illustration of the book (without text) presented on a screen, while the story is being presented by a storyteller. The picture book cinema offers numerous methodological and didactic applications. Unlike a normal reading class, Bilderbuchkino creates an atmosphere that stimulates children’s imagination. And it’s aimed at children between the ages of 4 and 8 years.

The Bilderbuchkino service is offered in two approaches:

  • Firstly, the Goethe-Institut Namibia through the Ministry of Education, Arts and Culture promotes reading in different school libraries.
  • Secondly, the service is offered to kindergartens and private schools through either a session at the Goethe-Institut Namibia Library or school premises.

The 1-hour-long readings are offered every 1st Wednesday of the month and include fun activities after. The Goethe-Institut will provide all technical equipment, including the slideshow and reader.For bookings and enquiries, please e-mail us at library.windhoek@goethe.de
