Give your little bookworm a treat this year. The Crossword book store brings a host of activities that are fun, exciting and help children learn— all at the same time. The vibrant bookstore chain is not just a repository of books, toys and DVDS, but literally turns into a community centre with young children trooping in during their summer holidays. While there are the usual suspects like colouring and story- telling, there are also activities designed to bring out your child’s creativity and teach them new skills. Children can learn Origami, the Japanese art of paper- folding, how to make their own dolls or mosaic art. There are also activities like glass painting, gift wrapping and paper craft that the children can involve themselves in.
HIGHLIGHTS The bookstores host regular bookreading and story- telling sessions to encourage the habit of reading among children
