• Why I Read Children's Books (And Why You Should Too) | May Cho

    303 views 11 months ago
    I love reading children's books and some of them are my favourites of all time.

    A couple of months ago, I presented a speech about why I read children's books (and why you should too) at a PechaKucha night event, and I didn't do as well as I wanted to, so I decided to share it again.

    A huge thanks to the wonderful Redz who pulled me into the event, without whom this sappy, personal anecdote would have been naught.

    Thank you so much for watching!


    speech starts at 1:32
    speech ends at 7:23
