Stories Galore on a Windy Saturday

It was a chilly morning due to the incessant rains in Bangalore but that did not deter children and parents from coming for the interactive book reading session conducted by Bookalore at the Rajendra Sinhji Institute.

Children of all age groups started assembling near the main stage where many puppets were kept. After some time we were told that the main stage would be for children aged 3-6 yrs and on the other side of the hall for children aged 7 – 12 yrs.

Pratham Books was also a part of the event as one of our books called ‘The Rhino Charge’ was to be read out to the children. The sessions conducted by Vijaylakshmi Nagaraj and Roopa Pai with puppets and puzzles were very interactive. The children sang songs and enjoyed the session thoroughly.

The storyteller asked a question "What is a baby rhino called ?" Instantly someone replied "Buffalo" ! The hall burst into laughter but somewhere i felt that that metaphorically it was not wrong. 

A big shout out to the Bookalore team for putting together such a fantastic event and we look forward to many more storytelling sessions.
