PREVIEW FOR INTERACTIVE STORY HOUR FOR CHILDREN BY YOUNG WORLD
Dennis would say that broccoli instead of porridge would have given a certain tale of bears a vastly more acceptable ending, but most kids are content taking stories as they come and letting tradition be. Here is a search for smart kids, and even if your kid isn't as proactive as that menace, there's a good chance that just paying attention will fetch him some gifts.
The Hindu - Young World Quest is organizing an interactive story hour for children in the age group of five to ten years. This program is being arranged as a part of the newspaper's education program. Aarti Kodali, the co-ordinator of Young World Quest, will preside over the program, and will talk on topics like general knowledge, stories and poetry. At the end she will pose questions from the topics that she has spoken on. This will enable the judges to understand the various children's memory power, creativity, talent and general knowledge.
Since children are usually shy and hesitant to speak in front of a gathering, there will be a special preparatory interactive session for some time among the children at the beginning of the main program in order to make them bold and get them to speak out. Some surprise gifts to the talented children will also be given on the spot.
There is no entry fee to take part. If interested in participating, you can contact The Hindu office, at Begumpet, or can speak with its correspondent at 340-3902/3. Please contact Aarti Kodali at 340-3902/3 or 666-7587 for further details.
