"These pupils are still new - about two month's old in primary school. In a class of 55, more than half have mastered spellings, sounds, reading and writing in such a short period. Tusome is good. The pictures incorporated in the books are a great idea to retain pupil attention and words/pictures recognition," said Mwanamisi Ngare, a standard 1 class teacher at Mvindeni Primary School in Kwale County.
