Mihai, a 7-year-old boy from the village of Peresecina, went to school for the first time this fall. His challenges are many - new colleagues, a new place in the school bench, he should get used to, lessons to learn and the first homework. To cope with these things, without losing their enthusiasm, it is much easier for children when they have a friendly book at hand.
Along with 999 other children from all over the country, Mihai will receive a set of books "Plaiul meu natal" and "Tara mea Moldovă - Floare" written by Stela Cemortan, Ph.D, author and coordinator of many concepts and normative documents in the field of preschool education.
Both books include age-specific poems and colorful illustrations being donated by Mobiasbanca - OTP Group S.A. The books aim at the harmonious development of the child's personality, which, with the help of adults, will gradually form cognitive-verbal and social-affective behaviors, all of which are important for school start.
