To Welcome Thousands of Book Lovers Coming for Celebrating the Word
Children's Book Fest
From 2007 onwards, in relation with the Kochi International Book Festival,
APS is organising the annual Children's Book Festival, a unique book festival
for school children. Children are encouraged to display their book collection
from home, before their school mates and win prizes. School authorities also
participate in the exhibition by bringing their dusty volumes outside the
school libraries. An independent panel of judges visit the schools
and award prizes to students and schools.
Over the years,the two month long Children's Book festival has grown into a
distinctive literary and cultural festival. Schools organise various literary
activities on the day of the festival, inviting writers, celebrities, and
eminent personalities. 106 schools in the last year's festival. Some of the
schools have displayed more than one lakh books. It was a surprise for
many, but not for us, that several students who exhibited more than one thousand books,
have read most of them. Truly, there is no cause for concern about the reading
habit of children and youngsters.
