This year too, we celebrated it at a few of our Henny Penny Library Centres in the true spirit with our little Champions.... We conducted various story theatre workshops in different formats - The story was Laadle Ka Dhol - a Level 3 book from our Publishing partners, Pratham Books. A wonderful story that all our children could relate to...that had a lovely, heart warming message about sharing and empathy.
Our children at the Henny Penny Library #1 loved making their own props and directing and enacting the play in a street play format - over 20 children participated in it with 3 narrators and 3 children playing the protagonist - Ladla. We had a delightful event at the colony's park where it was open to all. Many residents walking in the garden joined us and watched the performance, enjoying it immensely.
