Workshop Experience

This storytime adventure is an enriching experience that celebrates the beauty of diversity and the joy of belonging. It begins with a captivating read-aloud of a children’s book that celebrates the beauty of diversity, friendship, and acceptance. Young readers will be transported to worlds where characters learn the importance of kindness, empathy, and embracing differences.

After the read-aloud, our young participants will engage in discussions about the various themes presented in the stories. Through interactive activities, participants will have the opportunity to craft their own story endings, allowing their creativity to grow.

Why join the programs?

Our programs are conducted as after-school classes in-person or online. The program is created for kindergarten, elementary and middle school kids. We believe all children have the natural ability to be storytellers. This program enables them to nurture their skills, build creative confidence, and learn new ways to tell their stories.

Children can join seasonal programs like Diwali, Holi, and others. They can also join weekly programs that enable them to regularly practice storytelling frameworks, building reading, active listening, and creative writing skills. And craft a story! All our programs are designed to have hands-on practice, writing prompts and create strong engagement.

We loved the kind and enthusiastic approach. You did a great job of making the kids feel comfortable and making them share their ideas. The material shared with the kids was fantastic, it included ideas and pointers for story writing which were very interesting. Thanks for putting that together and sharing it with the kids.
