Laugh and participation are the ingredients of this fun activity aimed at stimulating reading in children. In this play, there are pirates, witches, talking hands, and tons of imagination!
Indeed, Bibliòfilus is an educational show in which theater, magic, and puppets are the means to promote the habit of reading in children, rouse the love of books, and encourage them to visit the library regularly.
During the show, children explore the fantasy of tales, the intrigue of mystery novels, and the magic hidden in the old books of spells.
Bibliòfilus is plenty of charming characters played by children: Bruixa Maduixa, Doctor Boig, Pinta Pintamus, and Llegidor.
Last but not least, the naughty Papo Pilipo ─an amusing puppet─ demonstrates that reading is the most fun thing in the world!
