For International Literacy Day (8th September), we had a dream - we wished that 100 people would volunteer to conduct storytelling sessions across the country. We ended up finding more than 250 champions to conduct storytelling sessions across the country. We will be sharing the stories of all our champions through our blog.
This story was sent to us by Kaveri Bharath.
I was hoping to have an event in my own neighbourhood for about 8 to 10 kids, but as most of the kids whom I called were not in town, I did a smaller event at my sister's house, with my own kids and my nieces. The youngest, (my 7 year old daughter) read the story to the others and then they all talked about what kinds of kolams they could do. Then I pulled out some coloured chalk and the 4 of them went crazy trying to copy some kolams and then to try and create their own, all over the driveway! We all had a lot of fun!
Thank you Kaveri for spreading the joy of reading!
