The 37th session focused on a unique approach to book reviews – the digital book review. Rather than the traditional method, books were displayed on screens, and participants came forward to review the assigned books for their respective teams. Additionally, two extra books were presented for a general review, adding a competitive and engaging element to the session.

Session Delivery:

The participants arrived to find the hall already organized, a commendable effort on their part. The session commenced promptly at 11 AM with a prayer led by Roseline Bemigho Ugbeye, followed by Misan Gbubemi singing the national anthem.

The coordinator provided a recap of the previous session, highlighting the positive feedback received from the cultural session, which infused excitement among the participants.

Debi Amadedon took the stage to explain the unique approach for the day. Instead of receiving physical books, participants were treated to digital displays, flipping through pages as the illustrator read aloud. Each team was assigned a specific book, and participants were required to note down the title, author, and illustrator, along with any new words and lessons learned. The focus was on maintaining attention and being prepared to answer questions, even from books assigned to other teams.

The volunteers observed with satisfaction as participants eagerly grabbed pens and books to capture crucial details. The digital books were presented, and after the review of the first four books, representatives from each team came forward to present their findings. Questions were directed to the team representatives, and the lively session saw participants passionately engaging in discussions, cheering each other on, and debating answers.

At the conclusion of each team review, two extra books were displayed for a general review, turning the session into a friendly competition. Participants enthusiastically argued their points, supporting team members and demonstrating their eagerness to contribute.
