Colombo, SRI LANKA – The Big Bad Wolf once again embarked on their CSR initiative of donating brand-new English books to school students alongside the Ministry of Education of Sri Lanka. This year, seven of the island’s best achievers from the GCE O/L 2017 exams were given the opportunity to fill a special Big Bad Wolf Box with books of their choice.

In line with their objective of advocating English literacy in countries where English is not the first language, the Big Bad Wolf strives to continuously make affordable books accessible to everyone.

“What we are doing is to provide an opportunity of a lifetime to these children to gain access to new, good quality English books. They are given the chance to pick any books they like and we hope that through this we are able to encourage them to read more and develop an inquisitive mind to dream big,” shared Nishan Wasalathanthri, Director of ProRead Lanka (Pvt.), Big bad Wolf Books’ local partner.

The seven students were invited by Big Bad Wolf Book Sale organizers and were rewarded with this opportunity ceremoniously. The students were accompanied by representatives from their respective schools as well as family members.

The Big Bad Wolf Book Sale is bigger and better this year, with more books being brought down to Sri Lanka to cater to every type of reader. As the Sale advances, more new books are being added to the Sale. Readers are sure to find many new additions from popular authors and best-sellers. Those who’ve been to the Sale may still be able to find something new because no two visits are the same.

This year, there has been an interesting shift in the crowd. More parents with children were seen, eagerly selecting children’s books that is suitable for their little ones. The Big Bad Wolf Book Sale is known to have an assortment of quality children’s books. Parents are able to find interactive books, activity books, story books, and more.

With a book sale of this calibre, the organizers have made sure to make improvements along with the iconic feature of keeping the sale going for 24 hours, non-stop, until the end of the Sale. This aspect of the sale is also an advantage to those who find it difficult to drop by during the weekdays due to work commitments or school for example.
