The act of gifting need not necessarily always involve giving out something tangible. Especially, in case of children, it can be an activity or a gesture that will lead to instilling good habits in them that will stay with them for a long time and even change their way of thinking.

Here is a unique opportunity for parents in New Delhi to give their children something beyond toys and other gift articles. We are referring to a children’s book & literature festival that is set to take place in the next few days in the capital city.

The festival is inspired by Hay-on-Wye, a unique first Book Town, lies on the border between Wales and England. One of the major annual events for Hay is the ‘Hay Festival’. Book lovers can visit this unparalleled book town, which is now a major tourist attraction. Taking a cue from the book town and its festival, literary enthusiasts in New Delhi has come up with a unique event for children. 

“I was indeed intrigued by the idea of a festival like. As I learnt more about it, I wanted to do something similar but for children,” informed Swati Roy, Eureka Children’s Bookstore co-owner and publisher of a magazine for children. M. Venkatesh, Anita Roy, Jo Williams; Anushka Ravishankar, Manisha Chaudhry of Pratham Books, Subhadra Sen Gupta and Swati Roy the organizers of the Bookaroo Children’s Literature Festival 2008.

The children’s literature festival will act as a platform for inculcating reading habits in children. Children’s books will be viewed as gorgeous, bouncy trampolines to encourage their creativity.
