Once a month, on a Wednesday afternoon, ABC organises a get-together for teachers where they can borrow 20 books for their school/class for one month. There is also time to chat and have a cuppa together.
The 20 books borrowed last month as part of SWAP20 can be returned and 20 other books can be selected.
More about Swap 20: We have partnered up with The Little English Library in Breda to provide a free lending service for schools to provide English children’s books for all children (0-16 years) who speak English or who are learning English.
New schools are welcome - there is no charge, but we hope you will come to ABC when you're ready to purchase books. We can advise and recommend titles for each age group.
Sign up if you are a school/teacher who would love to introduce more English language books into your school. Please reserve with Lynn@abc.nl.
Parents of bilingual kids are also welcome to contact Lynn@abc.nl - if enough parents are interested, we'll organize an evening together around SWAP20 and other recommended books.
The objectives of The Little English Library are simple: support children who speak English, support children who are English Language Learners and support integration. Together with ABC we are also to support teachers in Dutch Primary schools through campaigns such as SWAP 20 and by making book donations to PABO academies such as AVANS Breda.
Don't forget to check out our new English Books for Dutch Kids page on abc.nl for book recommendations, special priced starter packs for schools and much more!
