THE RUMOUR IN STORY TIME WITH SOHA ALI KHAN!
SOME WONDERFUL REVIEWS!
“MUMBAI’S BUSTLE is a thing of wonder for Doma, who has come to visit her friend Veda from faraway Ladakh in The Mountains of Mumbai (2019, Karadi Tales, appropriate for 6+ years), but she does miss her high mountains. Veda, however, knows just the thing to assuage her friend’s longing. Written by Labanya Ghosh and illustrated by Pallavi Jain, this is a beauty of a book that speaks of homesickness, wonder, and, eventually, a whole new way of looking at a city’s architecture, shaped as it is by the aspirations and demands of its inhabitants.” – The Indian Express
“Effortless, non-preachy and with just the right hint of cultural tidbits, this book is a sweet buy to stir up some childhood wonder.” – Outlook Traveller
“Written in playful verse and illustrated in mixed-media, the book is a story of two unlikely groups coming together.” – The Hindu

What do you do with a pumpkin that’s bigger than your head and barely fits on your table? Tia’s Thatha is very proud of his pumpkin, for he grew it all by himself, like magic! Now it’s Tia’s job to find homes for each little wedge from the oversized fruit, and quickly too!

WORKSHOP: A PICTURE IS WORTH A THOUSAND WORDS
Illustrations in children’s books ignite the imagination of young children more than words do. A precursor to reading, a catalyst for creativity, an accelerator for art appreciation and an enabler for increasing engagement, pictures in books do more than simply support the text.
Journey through some fabulous art from classic picture books to little known wonders, and discover their joy and magic. Explore how visuals tell a story all by themselves – one that a child never forgets!
The Karadi Cultural Alliance Trust (K-CAT), in association with Karadi Path, organised A Picture is Worth a Thousand Words – a workshop by Shobha Viswanath (Publishing Director, Karadi Tales Company) on the magic of picture books in Madurai and Dindigul on the 1st and 15th of February, 2020.
WORKSHOP: THE ART OF STORYTELLING
Do you recall the first story you ever heard? Do you remember how your imagination took flight with it? Stories are our first teachers, they are the carriers and keepers of knowledge. Stories are maps through which we explore the world and discover the joys of language.
K-CAT, in association with Karadi Path, organised The Art of Storytelling – a workshop by renowned actor and storyteller Janaki Sabesh, on Teaching Innovations at RPS Public School, Dharuhera and at Hotel Sree Annamalaiyar Park, Tirunelveli on the 1st and 22nd of February, 2020.
