Angola: Writer Wants Inclusion, Study of Child Literature in Schools

Luanda — The Angolan writer Zulinni Bumba Monday in Luanda spoke of the need for inclusion of child books as support and study materials in primary education in the country.

Speaking to Angop about child literature in Angola, Zulinni Bumba said she believes reading child literature by children would be an added value in the process of learning, given the books' value and research contents.

The writer said there are schools where foreign story books have prevalence over the local ones, adding it is high time this was changed.

Zulinni Bumba also appealed for a combination of effort among the various social agents to make this idea come true, with the children having access to local writers' story books.

She also appealed to writers to take their books to other localities of the country, seeking a broader coverage of children around the country.

Madalena Suzete Paulo Manuel Bumba who signs her books as Zulinni Bumba has published several books for children, with highlight to "O aniversário do rei leão", "Kambinda" and " Menino Kulomba e os dois lenhadores".
