Bookaroo â€“ a one of a kindÂ kid-list festÂ that celebrates childrenâ€™s literature is all set to begin on 19thÂ of May. After having successfully conducted the festival for 5 long years, the festival enters its 6thÂ year with exciting workshops and storytelling sessions that are to last for a good one month. Itâ€™s a team of enthusiastic authors, storytellers, puppeteers, illustrators and other creative artists who come together under one roof to entertain children in the age group of 6 to 14 and above if you can be a child enough to see and experience. The festival celebrates books, stories and pictures in the most creative and exciting ways that allow children to learn and have fun along the way. The summer schedule will be held from 19th May – 29th June at the Delhi Public Library. Save the dates for the winter schedule to be held in Delhi on the 29th & 30th November. It’s hard to attend all days so we picked our favourites for you!
1. Fun with cartoons by Ajit Narayan
How about creating characters that you see on T.V.? Creating them for the purpose of entertainment? We think itâ€™s a cool idea to create characters, cartoonize and a story line with them that engages audience. Your child might not become a cartoonist overnight with this workshop but there can definitely be a beginning towards it. You can learn the art of artistic and comic drawings along with visual examples along with a step-by-step tutorial.
2. Suryamandal ki sair
