Try looking back into your childhood – How about that instant smile which lit up on our faces at the words “story-time”? Story -time meant an escape from math and grammar into a world far far away, with promises of excitement. How many of us were not tempted to look for magic beans and climb up our very own Beanstalk, or dream of dancing in a ball as Cinderella?
Or the time when Daddy read us a bed time story every night, before tucking us in? Our kids might not be as lucky to have their loved one read to them every night, but they sure do have us. For our bacchas, just the thought of having someone to read to them, sitting at their schools when everything in their text books just becomes a lag, is a welcome and pleasant change.
Books like Chandamama, Secret Seven, The Famous Five, and of course the evergreen Tinkle never disappoint their readers and are always a delight. Its amazing how little kids find joy in almost all the simplest things in life, be it a lollipop or just a simple little story.The smile on their face is priceless. So,this year at Sahaya, our kiddos are definitely in for a booky- treat!
The SAHAYA Society's MY LIBRARY, book collection drive that seeks to source as many books as possible for children and raise the general awareness about the several million children who do not have access to Books.
The initiative will be launched at the AAROHAN '10 , on Oct 4th and go on till Oct 10. Anyone who wishes to donate books for children could come to the venue and place their books in the stall to be set up at the venue.
We believe that a book is all you need to change the future of an less-privileged child. So come donate one to the Sahaya Societies Book donation this year, and you could help guarantee thousands of less-privileged children the future they deserve.
