The children of Nalanda School, Mumbai, grooved to the sounds of the Birdywood Beat with writer Shamim Padamsee, who did a storytelling session with The Great Birdywood Games. Woo-hoot!
Jadoo at Kitab Khana
The teachers of Ascend International School, Mumbai, did a wonderful bilingual reading of The Magic Feather at Kitab Khana on Saturday 11th December 2012. Varsha read the Hindi version and simultaneously, Kelly read the English version of this delightful book, written and illustrated by Roma Singh. The reading was followed by a fun book-decorating craft project. Three cheers for reading!
Writer and storyteller Praba Ram did a read-aloud session at Kangaroo Kids on November 30th. One of the books she chose to read out from was Tulika’s Bulbuli’s Bamboo. “I thoroughly enjoyed poring over the rich, vibrant colours of the illustrations in this book… The lively play on prepositions makes each page a pleasure to read-aloud,” says Praba Ram, in this review of Bulbuli’s Bamboo.
“Every page in this book is a natural conversation starter, so there’s no end to how far the imaginations can soar when you and your child sit with a book like this,” says Richa Jha, in this review of Why Paploo Was Perplexed.
