presents

WEEKEND POETRY with Samina Mishra 

Workshop For Children

This 2-day poetry workshop for children focuses on two key ideas – self-expression and rhythm. The workshop uses playful word exercises to understand sounds and syllables as the basis of rhythm in poetry, and encourages children to write from their own experiences and context. The workshop also includes reading and discussing different kinds of poems to understand the ways in which words create rhythm, and how imagery and metaphor form the basis of the poetic imagination.

Age group: 9-12 years Date: Nov 24 & 25 Time: 11 am-1 pm

Fees: INR 2000 

Venue: Reading Caterpillar Library, F-24 2nd Floor Nizamuddin West, New Delhi – 13

Come see the Ramadan Moon at Reading Caterpillar!

We have a special reading this coming Wednesday, 6th July*

We will read the book Ramadan Moon by Na’ima B Robert (published by Frances Lincoln Children’s Book) Come on over for a little bit of drama, a fun story and tinsel, strings and beads galore.  Ramadan Moon is a stunningly illustrated book. And beautifully captures the excitement of the celebrations through the eyes of a little girl. Listen to what happens through the month and share the joy.

Our favourite Navroop will join in this Wednesday morning to help us capture the excitement in an interesting project!
