EnLIGHTenment through BOOKS


Dear Parent/Guardian,

Season’s Greetings to you. Here is an opportunity to invest in the personal development and holistic growth of your children beginning from January 2023. Set them up for all-round success early; here’s an opportunity – through BookLight!

What is BookLight?

BookLight is a 3-month book club membership for teenagers residing in Canaanland, Ota, Nigeria and environs who are passionate about personal development. It is set up to raise a crop of lifelong learners who continue to grow and glow through enlightenment from books.

Entry is highly selective as slots are limited; please read more details on this page and thereafter register your interest to join or to register your child(ren)/wards. Enrollment will close by Friday 30th December, 2022.

Who can Participate?

Only teenagers, 13-16 years old, in JS3 – SS3.

However, a special concession can be given for highly motivated and passionate upper primary and JSS 1/2 pupils on a case-by-case basis.

How Does it Work?

We meet physically twice a month; the 1st Saturday and the 4th Saturday (10 am – 2 pm) of January, February and March. A typical meeting looks like this:

  • Book Review (4th Saturdays, each member shares the review of the book read using the review template)
  • Speed Reading [A 30 – 60 minutes focused reading on a portion of the assigned book(s)]
  • Peer Learning (from reviewed book)
  • Game of Words
  • Somewhere in the world (Each person describes a country/city in the world, their geography, economy, etc.)
  • Group Projects and Presentations
  • Mini-Book Writing Contest
  • Light Refreshment

Benefits of BookLight:

  • Visible improvement in your writing and speaking skills;
  • Vocabulary bank building and improvement on tenses;
  • Group learning and networking with other passionate learners;
  • Mentorship from Dr. Abraham Owoseni on personal development and life skills among others.
  • *In 3 months, you’d have read three books personally and more than twelve books from others.

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)

Good question.

The books to be read in our context are personal development books, mostly non-fictions, and a few fictions. They are self-help/self-improvement books from veritable authors. They cover different subjects from purpose discovery to success, financial intelligence, leadership, career choice & academic excellence, spiritual growth and intimacy, friendships, relationships & associations, self esteem among others.

Only teenagers, 13-16 years old, in JSS3 – SS3.

A special concession can be given for highly motivated and passionate upper primary and JSS 1/2 pupils on a case-by-case basis.

We will give the physical copies of books to read per time. However, we recommend proper care of the books when within your disposal so it can remain in good quality

After payment, please share with us your transfer evidence, we will confirm receipt and send you the enrollment form. The first meeting holds on Saturday 7th January. We will also send you more details to the meeting venue within Canaanland.

Although the investment has been discounted already, we provide a 10% discount if you enroll 2 or more siblings. For 2 siblings, instead of paying N10,000, you get to pay N9,000. For 3 siblings, instead of paying N15,000, you get to pay N14,000.

A beautiful journal/notepad is very mandatory. Get one if you don’t currently have a new one. Plus, write legibly and neatly in your journal for every book reviewed. Keep it dear to you. Come along with it at every physical meeting.

Lifelong learning continues! We believe the three months will get you hungry for lifelong learning; as such, after the three months, your membership will expire. However, we’ll check on you occasionally in the online community on your progress for the next three months, afterwards.

Members pick a book in the month’s focus and review. Reviewed books are presented in the book club meetings. This template shows the basic flow as expected in the review.
