Get your children reading, with Exclusive Books

Calling all super parents! Do you believe in the power of reading? Take your little bookworm into any Exclusive Books store at 10am on Saturday 29 March (and Sunday 30 March at the Killarney and Melrose Arch stores).

One of South Africa’s heroes will read them a story from the fantastic Dewey’s Big Book Guide for Kids.  Exclusive Books is excited to welcome Ruda Landman, Simphiwe Dana, Zapiro, Gcina Mhlophe, Tony Leon, Catherine Grenfell from 5FM, Jenny Crwys-Williams from Talk Radio 702, Jaco Jacobs, Fanie Viljoen, Katlego Maboe from Expresso, Eloise Pretorius from Smile FM and others to their stores for Dewey’s League.

There is no entry fee, but please take along some stationery (it will be donated to a local charity). With Human Rights Day on 21 March, Exclusive Books would like to share the message that every child has the right to read!

The Dewey’s League books are about more than good marks or homework assignments. The books in this guide are the stepping-stones that will lead your child into the magical world of reading for fun, while improving their literacy level. After all, there’s no such thing as a child that doesn’t like stories – just a child that hasn’t found the perfect book yet.

This is the story of the three months Rajesh Sundaram, along with a small team of Indian television professionals, took to launch what was to be the biggest news channel in South Africa. However, this launch was not without its wide range of challenges, catastrophes and social media entertainment. From capricious, micro-managing owners who had a political and commercial agenda to the shocking abuse of staff and violation of laws, finally resulting in a tempestuous and very public parting of ways, Indentured is the true story behind the launch of ANN7 – better known as Gupta TV. This is behind the scenes, disclosing a range of delicious stories about the Gupta brothers, and their relationship with Number 9. And yes; you’ll be told exactly why he is called Number 9.
