Holiday and leisure-time reading guide | Western Cape Education Department

Parents play a key role in building the reading and writing skills of their children by encouraging them to read during holidays and after school hours.

The Western Cape Education Department (WCED) has prepared reading lists to guide parents on book selection at local libraries and when buying books for your children.

The following reading lists have been compiled by EDULIS, the library and curriculum support service of the WCED, according to language and grade level. They are intended to spark a love of reading at all levels. Your local librarian will be happy to provide further advice on books for readers in every age group.
