WHO WE ARE
“The whole world opened up to me when I learned to read”
– Mary McCleod Bethune
Hello and Welcome to MelaMagnus African Heritage kids book club.
We simply love books and reading together. We are a UK based Children’s book club with a strong Christian ethos; Jesus Christ the foundation on which we build everything we do.
Since January 2020, children between ages 4-13, have been meeting face to face monthly, before the Lockdown and now via online live meetings, to read together and discuss the books they love.
We immensely believe in the positive impact of reading and literacy worldwide.
“It is my wish that the voice of the storyteller will never die in Africa, that all children in the world may experience the wonder of books”
- Nelson Mandela
Our aim is to create a community that inspires literature that represents and celebrates diversity: children like to see and hear stories about people who look, sound, and live just like them.
We want to create a culture of reading and a comfortable, considerate environment for children and their families,
where everyone is free to contribute and enjoy books.
“You can find magic wherever you look.
Sit back and relax all you need is a book!” - Dr. Seuss
