Those books were the best, man! I learnt reading with Ralia, the sugar girl. Then after, I read every book I came across. I read the Dark Child by C. M Laye in primary school. King Solomon's Mines is one book I'll never forget. If there is anyway I'd get it, someone, please, tell me.

But all sha, I thank my mom. God bless her. She showed me all. Btw, I'm just 19. Not everyone of this generation isn't sound.

Nice one bro. Some of these books can be found at the Bookshop House at CMS, Lagos.

Students of now and my time

Now:
1. Bobo & indomi or no school cry
2. Every child calls teachers by their names
3. Nursery students have bag with books
4. You can be admitted without knowing how to speak
5. Add yours

My time:
1. Garry in one pocket & groundnut in the other
2. Calling a teacher by name is likened as treason. Nicknames were more invoke then shocked
3. We have personal blackboard with chalk in our back pockets
4. Your hand must cross your other ear before you can be admitted, that shows you are matured enough to handle cane grin
5. Add yours

In my opinion school was really more fun than now cool
