'Outside of a dog, a book is man's best friend. Inside of a dog, it is too dark to read', reads a famous quote.
And out to prove this theory to the kids is The British Library. The British Library is trying to inculcate the habit of reading amongst the younger lot, by screening some classic children's films, and organizing a book fest. The fest plays host to over 60 children , aged betwen 2 to 12, who are free to pick from their favorites, or add new ones to their list.
The film fest stretches over an exhaustive 10 days, and its itinerary reads as follows:
27-04-04: The Legend Of Robin Hood 28-04-04: Tweenies LIve 29-04-04: Around the World in 80 Days 30-04-04: The Dirty Beast 01-05-04: The Magic Finger 02-05-04: The Enormous Crocodile 04-05-04: Alice In Wonderland 05-05-04: Dream Street 06-05-04: Animal Adventures 07-05-04: Roobarb And Custard
