Boy, 10, launches book on hu­man body

Daily Trust - - BUSINESS - By To­biloba Ko­la­wole

A 10-year-old boy, Olamide Ade­bola, has launched his first book in Abuja.

Ade­bola, a pri­mary school pupil, said he de­voted at least five hours on week­ends to re­search while writ­ing the 56-page book ti­tled, “The lit­tle fact book.”

“I have put this book to­gether to share some of the things I have dis­cov­ered from chil­dren be­tween six and 15 years old. I am sure ev­ery reader will learn some­thing, no mat­ter how small about the hu­man body and how to take good care of it,” he said.

He said he got an idea to write a book about two years ago and was in­spired when he read a book, “Over 500 ran­dom facts.”

The boy’s fa­ther, Dr Ola­jide Ade­bola said his ca­reer and men­tal de­vel­op­ment started from his par­tic­i­pa­tion in school clubs and projects.

He said Ade­bola has won sev­eral awards one of which he got as the best pupil while in pri­mary two.

A med­i­cal doc­tor, Simeon Onye­maji, com­mended the young au­thor for his dis­cov­er­ies.

He said, “It’s a great thing for a lit­tle boy to think about writ­ing on the care of the hu­man body. As a med­i­cal doc­tor, I must con­fess, I saw two dif­fer­ent lit­tle facts that I just got to know by flip­ping through the pages of the book.”
