Saturday Stories at Bamboola

What a fun time at Bamboola! Authors Shobha Viswanath and Kaushik Viswanath read out Monkeys on a Fast. The audience sang 'Chips and Chocolate', chanted Om Namah Shivaya and laughed at all the monkey antics! Little Vinayak followed with his looongggg trunk, and had everyone out of their seats and dancing. 

Don't miss the photos of all the Karadi clan fun!

The Reading Child

The Spring and Zoom Centre for Literary Arts recently conducted a conference called The Reading Child. We conducted a workshop called Reading Masterchef - a recipe for a young and enthusiastic reader and took part in a panel discussion called Hooked to Books. Overall, it was a very fun learning experience for everyone. Teachers, parents, publishers, educators and writers came together to talk about the importance of reading in the life of a child.

Tharini Viswanathan of The Book Lovers' Program for Schools wrote a lovely report on the conference which was published on the Pratham Books blog. Do check it out!

And here are some pictures from the conference.

The Karadi Tales Chennai Team!

Recently, our good friends from Saffron Tree asked us for an office photograph... and we realised that we did not have one! So we decided one day to take a quick picture of our entire office just so you all know that we're not just a bunch of bears operating out of a jungle.

Psst! If you haven't seen it already, this is our office!
