Have you ever tried to make your own book? It can be great fun to try and write your first book!

Here is someone quite small who reads aloud how to write your own picture book. The reading is very fluent, even if some letters like ‘r’ and ‘t’ are slurred. Watch and learn how to write your own picture book:


Now, here’s the challenge. Write an autobiography (story of your own life, up to now) with picture illustrations.

Don’t forget to email me your book. Looking forward to reading your life-story!

Favourite Reads


Dear Students

At my age, it is difficult to have a “favourite book” because there are so many books I have read, enjoyed in different ways, and would like to read again, some day. Some of my “favourite reads” are tragic and some comic, and include novels, poems, travelogues, essays and plays. I also read a lot of non-fiction in various subjects, because it helps me learn more about the various branches of human knowledge.

Today, I would like to share two classics by Jack London and one by Rudyard Kipling that I read in my school library when I was your age, and would still enjoy re-reading today.

You can download these free e-books by clicking on the links below and selecting a version compatible with your iPad/tablet/computer:

I would love to know what books and authors you enjoy reading. Do mention the titles and authors of your favourite books in your Comments.

Happy reading!
