Session Delivery

Immediately after the opening prayer and the Itsekiri anthem, a quick recap of diabetes and toilet day was done. This is to refresh the memory of the participants.

The participants sat in anticipation waiting to get a book as the book review is always a time to read tales, scientific stories and different kinds of stories. This makes them always look forward to the last Saturday of every month because it is usually a day for a book review.

Debi Amadedon gave out the books to participants according to their team. Some of them read in sub teams others read in twos and few had a book to themselves.

The books reviewed are listed below.

  • Mr. Mumble authored by Kim Kennedy.
  • Come in authored by Kathleen Hayes.

  • Louis Pasteur, the value of believing in yourself by Spencer Johnson.

They were given about an hour to read the books and take note of new words and lessons learnt. The participants came to the session with a dictionary to know the meaning of the new words in the book.

Each team came out to review the books they have read. They told the moral lessons as well as the new words learnt from the books.

It is interesting to know that some participants have got so bold that they had much to say about the books. Everyone but a few were willing to come out to represent their team.

Key activities during the session 

Each team came out to talk about the book they read. Uwala Tedeye and Omatsola Okpeyeaghan as the party questions for the books they read.
