1 storytelling session conducted on 7th September. Number of children : 17
The session at Mantri Espana went off very well; We started at 1105 AM on Saturday. There were about 17 children age groups from 4 to 12 yrs. Paplu the Giant was a big hit and I did my best to make it interactive and fun. The kids wanted another session I read out the Clever Rabbit steals the fire too. We spent about 35 minutes altogether and it was great fun. The younger kids in particular were really happy and now they want this on a regular basis.
Thank you Srikanth for spreading the joy of reading!
