During the month of May every year, I organise a visit to our school by a group of young artists called "Hooked on Books". They come to the school and act out scenes from various books, in this way the learners are shown that reading can be exciting and fun. The show is two hours of action packed fun and the children just love it. The photo below shows just how enthralled they become while watching the show.
A picture worth a thousand words.
A bare minimum of props are used during the show.
The three young actors doing one of their routines, these three young people are so full of energy and enthusiasm, that I was exhausted from just watching them. The two boys sitting behind them are volunteers waiting to take part in a scene from a book.

The show was presented in two section, first half for the Junior Primary (Foundation phase), Gd's 1 - 3. And the second half for the Intermediate and Senior Phases, Gd's 4 - 7.
Tomorrow I'll be swamped with requests for these books.
