Nal’ibali’s anthology is a page-turner – make sure you read it

As part of Literacy Awareness Month celebrations, a national reading-for-enjoyment campaign has released a compilation of stories.

September is time for spring and storybooks – and Nal’ibali has made it easy to celebrate Literacy Awareness Month with its latest release.

The read-for-enjoyment campaign works hard to ignite a love for reading stories to children, as evidenced by the various events across the country where access to reading materials for early childhood literacy development is promoted.

Part of this year’s celebrations is the release of the children’s anthology storybook, which has been given away to children across the country at various Nal’ibali Children’s Literacy Festivals.

The Nal’ibali Children’s Anthology Storybook is a collection of 20 original short stories that are suitable for children up to seven years of age. “The anthology features an exciting array of beautifully illustrated South African stories with subjects aimed at igniting a love of books and stories,” explains Nal’ibali communication manager Suri Tsholetsane.

She says the storybook will continue to drive Nal’ibali’s objective of raising awareness about the importance of literacy for early childhood development, and the availability of new reading materials.
