Speaking to children about books and reading is one of my passions. Recently, I had the honour of being the guest speaker at the Book Week organised by Chrisland School, Ladipo Oluwole, Ikeja, Lagos and it was truly an awesome experience.
The week long event included some group readings for the children in their class rooms, book and reading exercises and much more. On the final day, all the children gathered for some presentations and a talk by my humble self.
I must say it was a learning experience for not only the children, but also myself. It was wonderful to know what their reading interests were and what goes on in their mind when they read books. I’m also grateful for the opportunity to impart them with some knowledge and I do hope the lessons learnt will stay with them forever.
Many thanks to the management of Chrisland School for the invitation.
