Reading in the Heritage Language

International Children's Book Collection

Eindhoven Library, HLE Network and The Reading Pier have partnered to create the International Children's Book Collection. Thanks to the contributions of the participating language groups, there are currently books in Italian, Chinese, French, Romanian, Bulgarian, Persian, Ukrainian, Polish, Korean, Spanish and English.

The International Children's Book Collection includes books for children aged 0 to 12. The books can be checked out at no cost since an Eindhoven Library card is free for children aged 0 to 18.


Read to children

Why read to children? In this first of a series of short videos from Eindhoven Italian School "La Lampadina," parents can be inspired to explore the joys of reading with their children in the heritage language.
