The book fair at Kendriya Vidyalaya School, Pondicherry gathered several school children and parents on the 3rd, 4th and 5th of February, 2015. Siruvar Pakkam, an exclusive children's book store organized the fair, showcasing children's books for all ages.
I appreciate the thought of conducting book fairs at schools. It encourages reading habit in children and also introduces children to wide varieties of books available in the present-day market.
The video at the end of the post gives you a glimpse of the range of books presented in the fair.
The collection at the book fair included:
- Moral stories for children (Aesop's Fables, Panchatantra, Akbar & Birbal, Chanakya etc.)
- Short stories
- Activity books
- Word building books
- Quiz book sets
