BUKUGURU

We're now hosting the BukuGuru project here.
It was first launched at BukuGuru.com, and then along the way we realised that it didn't need its own domain.
The entire starter kit is here, for creating your own DIY Book Club.
Have fun with this, and let us know if you have any requests for free worksheets or activity guides!

BukuGuru is a not-for-profit project. We help start book clubs and creative writing circles around Asia.

Our materials are designed to help reluctant readers, those learning English as a second language, and those with limited access to English learning resources.

BukuGuru was started by Singapore author Don Bosco (SuperCoolBooks.com) together with various partners who are also reading advocates.

Our current education kit contains { Foldable Fantasy } minibooks and worksheets designed by Super Cool Books.

If you're a teacher, parent, community leader, translator, social entrepreneur or student and you'd like to use our free resources to encourage reading, we'd love to hear from you!
