Reading is Positive Energy

The "Reading is Positive Energy" exhibition will be open for a whole year, to promote both reading and Emirati writers. The Reading is Positive Energy exhibition includes many corners in a big air-conditioned tent spread across 1,000 square metres near Gate 2 of Zabeel Park. These include a permanent book exhibition that will allocate a full month for Emirati publishers and will then host Arab and global publishers. It will also organise an exhibition for used books, and an exhibition for rare books. The Reading is Positive Energy Forum provides an open space for organisations and schools to take part in activities that raise the level of reading and enhance reading in society. It also features cultural activities including training workshops and knowledge competitions. The children’s Knowledge World corner features story-telling sessions that involve children and mothers to tell stories and learn from them. The Reading Sensory Wall helps students to write their own stories using their sight, touch, and hearing. The Smart Reading Corner provides the latest smart technologies and devices that help readers and motivates people to read. Schools are encouraged to participate in the Arab Reading Challenge where participating students will be asked to read stories, summarise, analyse, and then discuss them. There are also children’s games that help improve their focus and analytical skills. The Emirati Majlis includes a seating area to receive guests, and host authors and writers for book signings. At the ‘Today’s Children Read for Yesterday’s Children’ programme, children read short stories to young adults. Visitors can enjoy hot and cold drinks and cakes at the Coffee and a Book corner, while reading.
