Looking for Ambassadors!

Manon Sikkel is Children’s Book Ambassador for the Netherlands and spend her time trying to get everyone to take up reading. But every good ambassador needs an embassy…


That’s why the Children’s Book Embassy was set up at the Children’s Book Museum. This wonderful, inspiring place enables everyone to share the magic of stories with one another.


And everyone can become a Book Ambassador themselves! How? By recording a short video explaining why your favourite book is so special, and why everyone should read it. Book Ambassadors also receive a special passport, full of useful, fun tips for making such Book Videos.

If you’re curious about other people’s Book Videos, head to the Children’s Book Ambassador’s website! Some video's are in English.

  • Exhibithion in Dutch and English!
  • Share the magic of stories
  • Make your own Book Video
