“I had the chance to join the book party activities of Reading Elephant Laos a few times which is usually in remote schools. I always feel happy to see the excited and enthusiastic eyes of these kids for the story books that Reading Elephant team brings for them to read. They search for the books they like and read with attention lay on the mats and tell their friends about the story. They always look happy to read the books and have fun activity with the Reading Elephant team. They look sad when we leave their schools. Their schools do not have library and no story books to read. They just dream that they can read story books more often.”
