FETE ON A FRIDAY

March is a month of rising temperatures, tempers and tensions, thanks both to summer and exam fever! How did one Montessori school in Bangalore decide to deal with all this? By inviting Bookalore to take their children, parents and teachers into the cool world of books!

On the 27 March 2015, Bookalore did an event for the children, parents and teachers of Anweshana Montessori School, Banaswadi. Author-storyteller Vijaylakshmi Nagaraj delighted everyone with charming puppet tales and info-packed stories from her book, The Natural Wonders of India. Her audience travelled to many of India’s awe-inspiring natural wonders as Vijaylakshmi unravelled their mysteries for them.

Funky Rainbow put up a colourful collection of Indian children’s books for sale at the event, taking children and adults into the wonderful world of books and reading. Books were available for children of all ages (3-16 years) and at all prices.

All in all, everyone cooled off and it was a jolly start to the summer hollies, which the children and adults at this event decided to spend… chilling out with books!
