Delight at Helga’s Big Splash


Author Matthew Kalil visited Jujurha Preschool and read his lastest book, Helga’s Splash, to the children. They were fascinated that the ‘visitor’ read the book in English and their teacher also read it in Xhosa.

A discussion followed about ‘What does an author do?’   We have set up an Authors Table where children can draw their own pictures. Their teacher will then annotate it with written words. This is an important activity in emergent literacy.
