Dictionary of Dutchness


The Kinderboekenweek (children’s book week) is a much loved annual tradition that has retained its popularity despite dire warnings that kids aren’t interested in reading any more. And with a history of over 50 years, it’s survived a trend or two. The event, held in October every year, kicks off with the children’s ball where the prize for the best Dutch children’s book is awarded.
