Enticing young learners to read books is what we do best! Hooked on Books has been igniting a love of reading in children across our country for the past 25 years, having toured Gauteng, Mpumalanga, Kwa-Zulu Natal, the Western Cape and even as far abroad as Botswana and Swaziland!
Our name is synonymous with making reading fun and enjoyable for young learners. We visit close to 700 schools nationwide and reach over 100,000 learners/pupils between the ages 2 - 13 years annually. We bring the best selection of children's literature to your schools.
Our Books are not chosen at random or based just on reviews. The Hooked on Books team spends months every year going through a multitude of books to sift out the best and most acceptable. We adhere to a battery of stringent criteria in our endeavor to select healthy, wholesome and fun literature that educators and parents can approve of.
New shows are devised every year to create a fresh and irresistible lure into our literary program.
Lots of thought and creativity goes into bring the books to life. Creative costuming, careful scripting, innovative direction and a talented team of professional actors make up our recipe for success.
Our teams of actors through an intense audition process and work tirelessly throughout the year, racing to schools each day to bring you our wonderful, action packed educational book show.
Fun fact: Shaeleen, Thomas, Laura & Dineo have all performed as young actors in Hooked on Books many MANY many years ago!
