As customary, the last Saturday of the month was dedicated to our book review session. This session included both the presentation of assignments on Sustainable Development Goals (SDG) and the book review.

Session Delivery

Being the last Saturday of May, both participants and volunteers were well aware that the day was reserved for the book review. After the opening prayers and the Itsekiri anthem, the participants quietly took their seats.

Emmanuel Egbe reviewed the previous session, expressing his appreciation for the participants’ performances. He then selected a librarian from Team Ikenwoli among the interested participants, sparking keen interest among them.

The participants lined up to pick up their books and settled into their seats to read, either individually or in pairs.

Before the book review began, participants who had prepared presentations on the Sustainable Development Goals, an assignment given in the previous session, came forward. They discussed the different SDGs with remarkable knowledge, impressing both the volunteers and some parents in attendance.

The book review was coordinated by the team leader, who organized the review process by team. Each team took turns presenting their reviews.

During the book review, participants learned about various topics, including scarecrows—objects designed to resemble humans and placed on farms to scare away birds and other animals from eating the crops.
