It was raining for the past couple of days and the weather was balmy. The traffic was chaotic. But when Shalini Arora, the speaker for the day reach RAK Study Centre, and was greeted with a huge Good Morning by a group of tiny angels, all the annoyance of existence vanished. We were at RAK Study Centre at Lady Irwin College for the second session of storytelling. There were 40 children between ages 2-4 for the session.

Shalini began her session with a story named “The Greedy Frog”. She narrated the story with the help of props such as hand puppets, colourful scarfs, stick puppets and mask which proved to be the most efficient way to get the kids involved. She made animal voices with the children and they loved it. The story was about a frog who drinks all the water of the jungle and how animals make him laugh to get the water back out of his tummy. She modulated her voice to engage the children and ended with the rhyme “sticky bubblegum”.
