Eager Readers at Boys LitClub in Pasig City, Philippines

*Our Boys LitClub in Pasig City, Philippines is done in partnership with the Real Life Foundation.

The boys at the Boys LitClub were a bundle of energy and excitement as they met for the second time. When I brought out our read aloud book, they gathered around wanting for the opportunity to read a paragraph out to the rest of the group. Luckily, there were enough pages in the book for everyone to have a turn!

I brought special gifts from LitWorld to this session, our globe balls, which everyone loved. Using the globe balls, I had the boys answer our question of the day: "If you could go anywhere in the world, where would you go?"

The boys shouted out cities and countries from different continents, expressing their dreams to see the world.

A boys litclub participant (pictured above) took our read aloud book from the session and sat with it on his own, eagerly reading the text on his own. It was inspiring to see him want to read so much- he even wanted to stay longer just to read!


Special thanks to volunteer Michelle for helping me facilitate this week's Boys LitClub!
