JustBooks, Nerul Branch in Mumbai recently held an interactive story telling session. It was conducted for the age group of 5 to 10 years old by Srividhya Venkat, who is a member at our branch.
The session started with a story through pictures and then the children were taught to make puppets of the characters in the story. The children made the puppets by drawing and colouring them and finally sticking them on sticks. To conclude the session the children were made to enact the story with the puppets made by them.
3 such sessions were organised over as many days. In fact on the first day, the session had to be divided into 2 age groups. The older age group were told give alternate conclusions to the story and make a visual presentation of the entire story.
In all, the event was a total success and found a ready acceptance from members and the community of Nerul.
Here are some pics of the event.
