Fun with Books at Urban Solace (13 - 15 years) Session 3


Fun with Books @ Urban Solace
Rediscover the Classics with Christina Daniels
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Theatrical readings of the book by Jatin Prabhu
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Every Saturday, we will use exciting activities, audio visual clips, and readings to take our participants back to the classics. We will return to the era in which the book was written, understand the author, and unlock the plot.

Each of our classics are chosen from different cultures to introduce our participants to world literature.

We encourage children to read an abridged version of the book before each session. But a knowledge of the book is NOT essential to participate. We will get your child to have fun with the world of books, whether they have read the book or not.

ABOUT THE BOOK:

Our Trees Still Grow in Dehra – Ruskin Bond

Fourteen engaging stories from one of India's master story-tellers Semi-autobiographical in nature, these stories span the period from the author's childhood to the present. We are introduced, in a series of beautifully imagined and crafted cameos, to the author's family, friends, and various other people who left a lasting impression on him. In other stories we revisit Bond's beloved Garhwal hills and the small towns and villages that he has returned to time and again in his fiction. Together with his well-known novella, A Flight of Pigeons (which was made into the film Junoon), which also appears in this collection, these stories once again bring Ruskin Bond's India vividly to life.
