Shaeleen was recently interviewed by Simphiwe Ncongwane about the new Hooked on Books Digital shows that were launched in September 2020. It was an exciting 14-minute interview talking about inspiring young readers in our country and the wonderful new partnership with Exclusive Books. Hooked on Books is now able to reach children in schools all over the world.

Radio Interviews

Nominated by a Cape Talk listener, Shaeleen Tobin and Thomas Barlow were interviewed by the fabulous Pippa Hudson on dramatizing children’s stories and entrenching the love of reading to young learners.

Pippa was very interested in how the books are brought to life and how we get Kids Hooked on Books. Teachers and parents called in excitedly to express the positive effects of our shows and how reluctant readers are now becoming ferocious readers.  Shaleeen and Thomas loved their time with Pippa and hope to chat again soon!
