Learning to Love Reading
Last month, the teaching staff of Generation School organised storytelling sessions for Liberty Books at the store’s Hyderi and The Forum branches. Since technology has taken over the world and all children do is watch the television and play video games, this event was held in order to instill reading habits in children.
The use of visual aids made the sessions colourful and interactive. At the end there was a quiz based on the stories, and prizes were given out to the student with the most correct answers.
There was a massive turnout and the enthusiasm of the children was infectious. “It was lovely interacting with the children today,” said a representative of Generations School. “We feel reading is the best habit one can inculcate in our children. Such sessions should be held more frequently as they promote the literary culture in our society.”
