Bookaroo: Celebrating Children’s Literature « Mummy Knows Best - The hands-on mum's guide to cool kids' stuff

The lovely weather of pre-winter Delhi is perfect to ferry the kids to Bookaroo, the International Children’s Literature Festival. Kids can listen to authors read out bits from stories and poems, make puppets, create their own fantasy characters or graphic novel, all in the wonderful AnandGram venue, full of courtyards and trees and terracotta figures

I managed to see Anushka Ravishankar read from her super book Moin and the Monster. She had some kids sing the monster’s truly awful song along with her, and it had the audience sitting under the spreading branches of the Kahani Tree in splits. I also saw Michael Heyman get kids to help him come up with their own crazy words and tongue twisters to put into a nonsense poem. Roopa Pai, author of the Taranauts series gave kids puzzles to solve, just the like the superheroes of her books do, and Pratham had a session with kids about sensations and smells and music associated with the seasons. Gita Ramanujam was also there, but unfortunately I missed her brilliant storytelling skills in action.

It was great to see parents, and in some cases grandparents, as absorbed in the sessions as the kids themselves…beats a weekend of television and birthday parties in my book! Tomorrow I’m going to try and catch Ruskin Bond and another

author from my youth, Anupa Lal, as well as a host of other sessions that sound promising. Entry is free and there is a fair amount of parking. There’s a tea and snacks section, and a well-stocked bookstore too.

November 24th and 25th 2012. At Sanskriti Kendra, Anand Gram on the Mehrauli-Gurgaon Road. 10:30 am to 5pm
