Star Reader of The Month – Mrs Young

Star Reader Of The Month

The boys from The Novelties Book Club: Daniel Campbell, Jacob Holder,  Matthew Hamilton and Jamie Rankin, interview a member of staff each month about their books and reading choices.

These interviews are a great way for all in school to learn about lots of different books and to hear why reading is something we should all do, every day and also be something we enjoy!

Star Reader Of The Month

This month, we interviewed Mr Tsotsi about topics that interest him. Mr Tsotsi's favourite book as a child was

Letters to Madiba

It is a collection of letters that have been sent to Nelson Mandela, the ex-South African prime minister. He said that this was a book that he found very touching. When we asked him what his favourite author was, he said that, back in his time in South Africa, stories were told rather than written down. He said that his favourite story teller was his grandmother.

 His favourite genre of books is academic.

The best lesson that he has learned from a book was that we must remember past mistakes so that we do not make them again.

 The strangest book that he had ever read was God Delusion, a book about scientific arguments against the ideas of Christianity.

 The first story that he ever heard was Intsomi, a fable that was told to entertain and put children to sleep. It was a funny story about ants that teaches how to deal with them by laughing.

 He also told us that he met an African poet without knowing it. In 1981 he was travelling and on his travels he met the author.
