Grab the opportunity to rediscover all time favorite children's classics!
A book club for young learners is being organised to explore some of the most popular classics of all times. Each session is designed to focus on one classic novel in which the facilitators will take children on a journey to discover the main characters, plot and the storyline with theatrical readings, storytelling, audio visual aids, art and craft as well as exciting games and quizzes. Children are not expected to have read or be familiar with the classics before attending these sessions.
This month we focus on the ever-popular novel by Daniel Defoe – “Robinson Crusoe”. The book is presented as an autobiography of the title character - a castaway who spends 28 years on a remote tropical desert island near Trinidad, encountering cannibals, captives, and mutineers, before ultimately being rescued.
Age Group: 10 – 14 years
Fee:INR 500 per child
