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

    245 views 7 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!
