Christmas is the spirit of giving without a thought of getting. It is happiness because we see the joy in people. It is forgetting self and finding time for others. We reach out in love to help those less fortunate. Our hearts are softened. Enemies are forgiven, friends remembered, and God obeyed. AND THE GIFTS!!

Yes, Christmas is the season of spreading cheer and happiness. The ones who enjoy the Christmas season most of all are the young children who believe in Santa Claus and the power of magic. Children have an innate love for stories. And why not? Stories teach us about life, about ourselves, and about others. A good storytelling session can do wonders for a child’s imagination and can really work at enhancing his expression. With this thought Books en beyond in collaboration with DPS, Greater Faridabad organized an online storytelling session on zoom platform for the young dipsites with children’s’ author Seema Wahi Mukherjee.

Ms. Seema W Mukherjee, an amazing storyteller, had our young dipsites spellbound and utterly fascinated with her tales.As Ms. Seema began her narration of “Stinky Sam Discovers A Secret”, a story for young children, she soon had everyone in the audience engrossed with her clever storytelling and they came to adore the character of the ‘Sam’ who was fun-loving and playful. After this story, she narrated ‘A Special Christmas Tale’, which children found to be beautiful as well as heart-warming. They enjoyed the impersonations of different characters by the storyteller and were transported into an imaginary world!

The lit-up faces and mesmerizing looks spoke volumes about the interest that the session had generated in the children. The session lasted for about an hour. Their feedback soon after the session was visible for everyone on the chat: ‘brilliant, epic, fantastic, amazing and fabulous! The experience had truly seemed to have worked its magic on them! The Christmas Season had truly begun!!
