  • Here in Panjim I send both my sons to a place called Bookworm almost 3-4 evenings a week for 1-2 hours. This is a fantastic place that has been around for one year. Two qualified, enthusiastic and experienced mothers Elaine and Sujata converted a flat into a children’s library. In addition to offering a whole selection of quality books for the age range of 3 to 15 years, they also offer a lot of reading related activities everyday from 3 to 7 p.m. A reading room where an adult reads to younger children. An activities area where children read a story and then do some craft or painting related to what they read. Classes for parents on how to read to their children etc etc etc. Children are allowed and encouraged to take books home at nominal rental. The fees are just Rs. 1,200/- per child per year and well worth the money. — Cecil Pinto, writer, on Aldona-Net []
  • From Goa itself comes out ‘The Bookworm‘ magazine. It is published once every two months and can be got via (contact Sujata/Elaine on 9823 222665 or 9923 322665). — Article in the Herald, on children’s magazines.
  • The difference between reading as a skill and reading for pleasure was strongly reinforced to enable parents to understand the ¬†emotional link between reading to children, being read to and consequently growing up to enjoy reading. — From a post by George Pinto, Goanet
