It’s the best event I’ve ever attended.”

Selected from six schools across the Federal Capital Territory (FCT), Shine joined the Korea Booking Event organized by the Korean Cultural Centre to commemorate World Book and Copyright Day.

Expressing his thoughts, Shine said, “I’ve learned so much today. It’s been incredibly fun, and I won’t forget it easily because it’s been the best.” He added, “I’ve been inspired to write. These stories are fascinating, and there are many morals to learn from them. I believe I can do it all. I can write. I want to be a writer.”

The reading session was indeed memorable as the students immersed themselves in Korean Folktales, reading six books, including “The Magic Candies.” Subsequently, one student from each school stepped forward to share what they learned from the session, and their experiences were truly mind-blowing.

Habiba Sharon Yakubu of the Korean Cultural Centre Nigeria (KCCN), who coordinated the exercise, emphasised the importance of books in every child’s world. She expressed her fulfillment in celebrating this important day with a book event, echoing the joy felt by the children themselves.

Similarly, Sueyong Kim, the Cultural Manager of the Korean Cultural Centre, felt fulfilled in sharing the beauty of Korea’s folkloric culture with the participating students. She remarked, “It’s been a beautiful experience with the young Nigerians. They love the stories, and they’ve learned a lot from them.”

World Book and Copyright Day is celebrated annually on April 23rd worldwide to promote the importance of books, reading, and copyright.
