“A child who doesn’t read is a child who doesn’t dream”. (Anonymous)
Félicia is the co-founder of AL. She works at Lycée International de Londres Winston Churchill.
“My whole world revolves around books. I am blessed to be able to be surrounded by children every day and to work in a school which values so much the power of imagination. These children are lucky enough to have a huge library for themselves. Despite the technology, a book is still a sacred object for them. But not every child is as lucky as them. And that is our duty to bring the books to them. Because a child who doesn’t read is a child who doesn’t dream. And it cannot happen on our watch”.
