Singakwenza, which means “We can do it” is a Non-Profit Organisation providing Early Childhood Education to economically disadvantaged communities.

It is #WorldReadAloudDay today!

As much as we love children to read books created by amazing authors and illustrators, you can also create books of your own if you don’t have ready access to lots of commercially produced ones. Using cereal boxes, scrap paper, pictures from magazines and rope made from plastic bread bags, you can create a variety of picture books with different themes, and then make up stories about the animals or people in your books.

Children who have positive experiences with books from birth to five are more likely to become interested and engaged readers.
