What could be a better book to kick off our new year than our all-time-favorite ‘Gajapati Kulapati’? Had a great time sharing this awesome story with our budding bookworms at the library yesterday morning.

Kids loved this way-too-funny picture book all about the adorable elephant ‘Gajapati Kulapati’ and his sneezing adventure. We had fun imitating his sneeze and also acting out all the accidents that followed. #Schoolkutti #WordPlay #GajapatiKulapati #StoryFun #Storytelling #TrivandrumLibrary.

Poetry Workshop

“Teen author Shelley Mishra conducted a poetry workshop at Children’s Library on 12th January, 2019. Shelley discussed how we can turn the everyday into the extraordinary through insightful poetry. The audience loved her beautiful poetry and also learned how to interpret poems to gain a more conscious understanding of how a poem achieves its effects. Children also presented their own poems and got feedback from the young writer. Thanks Shelley for inspiring our children! Looking forward to more such sessions in future also.

Twinkling Stars

Thanks to Renju Chandran (Scientist, ISRO) for conducting an extra session of the space workshop at the Children’s Library in spite of her busy schedule. She introduced the little ones to the enthralling world of space and encouraged them to ask questions and apply their reasoning to every concept that was discussed.
