She blazed through school reading all titles and She just could not stop. Up till date She still reads and She decided to Get her children and other children interested in books early on.
And this brought about the idea of starting the Kids Literary Circle Book Club to get other children of ages 1-12 begin to love Books from an early age. The Kids Literary Circle Book Club is currently running online on Zoom Every Saturday due to the pandemic.
At the Kids Literary Circle Book Club, we want children to develop a well rounded growth and future using Books to activate Science, Technology, Engineering, Art and Math. We bring the Book to life and also engage in several activities around the book to engage children. The idea is to show children, there is so much one can do just by picking up a book, that way it makes it more exciting for them to want to read and explore.
We look forward to making the Kids Literary Circle Book Club a household name and getting as many children interested in picking up Books, thereby reviving the dwindling reading culture among children these days.

The mission is to raise readers and leaders. We have received and reviewed books from authors both locally and internationally. The platform is a popular Instagram page for children's book reviews done by children. We recently introduced their YouTube channel – Sisters Who Inspire NG with a similar mission and focus.
