A national parent-child reading campaign was launched by the All-China Women's Federation (ACWF) on April 17 in Beijing's Shijingshan District in the run-up to the 27th World Book Day which will fall on April 23.

Shen Yueyue, Vice-Chairperson of the Standing Committee of the National People's Congress and President of the ACWF, presented classic books to family representatives, and she encouraged parents to accompany their children to read books, and guide them to cultivate good conduct and habits.

During her visit to the library and children's home of a community in Shijingshan District, Shen learned about parents' needs in family education and their participation in parent-child book-reading activities. She urged the parents to make full use of online family education platforms to master scientific and practical methods of family education and to actively participate in parent-child book-reading activities.

Shen also encouraged the children to read more classic books, follow the Party's leadership, build noble ideals and be ready to strive for the great rejuvenation of the Chinese nation.

Shen stressed that local women's federations across the country should make full use of public cultural resources to carry out various parent-child book-reading activities with rich content and provide professional and accessible parent-child book-reading support services.

The ACWF will also donate reading materials to and provide parent-child reading guidance for left-behind children whose parents have migrated to other places for work, as well as migrant children and children and families in need, in such areas as old revolutionary bases, ethnic minority regions, border areas and key counties pursuing rural revitalization.
