The “Read with Me” program was implemented since February 2016 in the villages of Tonekabon. Thereupon, three primary schools (eleven classes) from three different villages joined the program. Accordingly, 306 children (132 girls and 174 boys) in preschool through 3rd grade were covered. 15 educators and one school principal participated in the “Read with Me” workshops. In February 2016, the “Read with Me” workshops were held intensively in one day. Read with Me experts visited the schools that implemented the program on 18 May 2016. The project was funded by a number of benefactors for the provision and distribution of books. Also, the experts of the Institute for Research on the History of Children’s Literature held the workshops voluntarily.
