Books for babies and very young children
In April 2019 we will be hosting a Book Dash aimed at creating 10 new African storybooks that are aimed specifically at babies and very young children, as well as the adults who read to them. The purpose of this survey is to collect information from experts (in book-sharing, reading, and in the health and development of babies and young children) to inform our thinking around how we approach the 2019 Book Dash. The age we'll be aiming our books at is 0-2 years old, corresponding to the campaigns around the first 1,000 days of a child's life.

We are sending this survey to a wide range of respondents.

In order to easily get a big picture view, the questions are mostly closed-response type questions (e.g. multiple choice). There is often the opportunity for a comment after the question, and there is an open-response question at the end of the survey where you can note down any important issues that you would like to share with us, and that haven't yet been covered.

The survey shouldn't take longer than 10 minutes to complete. Thank you for your time and considered responses, in advance!
