A workshop to nurture your child’s spirit of inquiry

Dear parent,

Discussions and debates allow children to express their views, but, more importantly, allow them to appreciate another viewpoint. Also, every child is naturally inquisitive and our challenge lies in nurturing this innate curiosity. Children’s Library presents a General Awareness Workshop that is designed to build on a child’s spirit of inquiry. Loaded with imaginative stories, an informative quiz and interactive activities, this workshop encourages children to think, reflect and respond. Gift your child an enjoyable learning experience that will effectively lay the foundation for a brand new set of questions.

Stimulating little minds

Attending interactive storytelling sessions improve concentration, communication and listening skills – above all, it keeps their imagination alive. Children’s Library witnessed some fun filled moments at Aswathy Karanaver’s story telling workshop on Jan 19. Her animated and lively story telling session was a real treat to the children. Delight played on their faces as she spun tale after tale, singing and laughing with them. It was a pleasure to see the little ones sit goggle eyed listening to the ways in which kuttisankaran outwitted the ghost. Of course, kids were not the only ones who loved it, even parents who were present had a great time as they went back to their childhood days.


After the story, we also conducted a recitation contest for the participants aged 4 to 10. The children enjoyed reciting their favorite poems and the winners were presented the best prizes in the world – books 🙂


Thanks and Kudos to Aswathy for the wonderful workshop, she captured hearts with her amazing storytelling style.

Story Time Children’s Library

Which child does not love stories? Storytelling teaches children how to concentrate, visualize and remember a sequence of events. Moreover, story telling plays an important role in early literacy and language development. Have your children come and listen to fascinating and captivating stories that will spark their imaginations! Its going to be a fun filled and interactive session at 10 AM on Jan 19 at Children’s Library, with Aswathy Karnaver of Blue Sky Children’s Club. There will also be an opportunity for interested kids to participate in a recitation competition and win prizes.

The Gift of Reading

Do your kids curl up in front of television shows during weekends? Reading a book is any day better than watching television. Exposure to books and to reading should be an integral part of every child’s daily routine.

Do your kids ask you endless questions about where they came from and why the rainbow is colorful? Keep that sense of curiosity and wonder alive in their little minds. Encourage them to look up answers to their questions in dictionaries, encyclopedias, books of facts and every other reference book that they can get hold of.

Do libraries really help children be more successful in life? You bet. It is a well known fact that children who grow up with a love for books have improved attention spans, better concentration, self confidence, good linguistic skills and well developed minds. Libraries provide children with information and resources not available at home. They also help you find the right books for your children at every age.

The new children’s library has a wide collection of books by popular children’s authors of all times. We plan to offer a variety of fun events for children from time to time – story telling, reading aloud, puppet shows, magic performances and much more.

We will also keep your kids motivated to read with contests like the Reader of the Month and the Best Book Review of the Month.

Choose the best gift for your child – the Joy of Reading!
