The Reading Tribe by David Riley
The Reading Tribe

“Reading is as important as feeling the sun on your face,” says award-winning singer Che Fu. In The Reading Tribe, Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern, rugby legend Sir Richie McCaw, writer Selina Tusitala Marsh and 24 other prominent Kiwis talk about how important reading has been in their lives. They share the books they loved as children, books that helped them succeed in their chosen fields, and books they want you to read … because reading them would be like feeling the sun on your face.

South Auckland-based teacher-writer, David Riley, wrote The Reading Tribe to inspire young readers to pick up a book, to let them know that the coolest Kiwis love a good read – whether it’s a graphic novel, a page-turning thriller, an inspiring biography, or a childhood favourite.

‘An excellent resource!’
Aaron Wilson.
Woolf Fisher Research Centre

‘I have seen many resources made for my subject but this is absolutely fantastic in presenting the necessary skills a young person should have, and interweaving them into the rugby topic. I work primarily with ESOL students, many of whom are rugby mad, and also Maori and Pasifika students who are not experiencing success in their mainstream English classes. This resource will be so beneficial to them, I can’t wait to use it. Very cleverly done, the students will not even realise they are learning the skills that are so important and necessary to them with all the scaffolding and interesting tasks they have to do!’
