I put up a post some time back about the MBBY (Malaysian Board on books for Young People) when they held their conference in July. But as Daphne Lee points out in a blogpost entitled Bringing Books and Children Together - But Where? And When? And How? this seems to a singularly ineffective organisation (presumably guzzling taxpayers' money) when promoting reading among children in Malaysia needs to be made a top priority.
Daphne has some tough questions for the MBBY and some suggestions for how the organisation could grow. But does anyone care to listen? Is there now anyone there at all? (The organisation's website seems to have completely disappeared!)
