Overview

The importance of reading can never be undermined; it is the most fundamental skill to develop for overall success. Beyond the obvious academic benefits (improved speed, efficiency, vocabulary, language & literacy), reading can open up your mind to entirely new worlds and concepts; ideas that young people may never have been confronted with otherwise. It aids holistic growth and develops personalities.

At REWA, we keep abreast of the latest books in the children market by not only reading them, but also evaluating them for their potential of enhancing the quality of a child’s academic and personal stages. We are well aware of what books would be interesting to young people of different ages, genders and personalities. We do not force books upon readers but recommend and suggest things after getting to know the student. We let them choose based on other people’s reviews, previous reading habits and future reading goals.

We can work with teachers and librarians as well to start initiatives in your school that will build positive reading habits. In addition to that, we can run what is known as a ‘literature circle’ demonstration in a class and train your English teachers to do the same thing as a sustainable teaching and learning tool.

Do call us to find out what we can offer you and your students to specifically suit your needs.
