On Wednesday, CAA Cymru’r Director, Delyth Ifan, attended Tinopolis Studios in Llanelli to be interviewed live on S4C’s Prynhawn Da, as part of their Book Club segment.

 

The interview focused on CAA Cymru’s background and its vast variety of publications, from educational resources such as textbooks, dictionaries and  revision guides, to digital resources and apps and novels for children and teenagers.

 

The Book Club featured our Nansi a Nel series of books by Roslyn Schwartz, aimed at children aged between 3 and 5 years. These books are Welsh adaptations of the popular The Mole Sisters series, and follow the delightful sisters on their adventures.

 

The book club also focused on Jac a Jes, a series of children’s books by author and teacher, Christa Richardson. This series is aimed at children aged between 7 and 9 years, and especially children who may not use Welsh as their first language. There are eight books within this series, four of which are fictional and four which begin combine fiction and facts about various topics, such as the red kite and how to make batik.

 

The presenters also asked about our range of novels, focusing on our detective novels and in particular, Gwaed y Gwanwyn by Gareth F Williams. The story is full of tension and mystery - ideal for teenagers.

 

CAA Cymru also publishes e-books and apps for children of all ages, and our app, ‘Gwastraff’ was also featured within the book club. The app is aimed at children between 5 and 7 years old and includes games and puzzles designed to improve literacy and numeracy skills. The app is based on the theme of the environment, offering tips and advice on how to reduce waste and help to protect the environment. The app is available to download for free from Google Play and The App Store.
