Reaching out to children is fun. But reaching out to children just an hour before they break off for mid-term vacation? Fun and challenging and a strength-test for the vocal chords! About a hundred students of Class 3 of Deccan International School, Bangalore, gathered in the auditorium for the BLF-PB Outreach session.
The diminutive Sangeetha Kadur, illustrator of Wildlife in a City Pond, and I, co-author of the Rituchakra series, decided to engage the children together. After I moved from one season to the other through the books Everything Looks New; Lassi, Ice-cream or Falooda; and Peacocks and Pakodas, Sangeetha took over and talked about the fascinating little creatures who are seen at a pond during the monsoon.
