- Schools are shut indefinitely! The children are at home and it’s a zoo! The daily routine has been completely overthrown by the pandemic. The never-ending cycle of hand-washing, hand-dirtying and hand-washing is driving parents up the wall! (Was that a sneeze, mister? Go wash your hands right now! Yes, again!) It’s anarchy, there’s nothing else to say.
- And look they’re glued to their screens. It’s one cartoon after another. Dora the Explorer is like a family member since she never seems to leave the house! Sure, this isn’t good for their eyes but how else does one keep them occupied when they can’t go anywhere?
- Wonder what’s going to happen to the deposit made on swimming lessons and Abacus classes. Maybe they’ll do fine without education or recreational activities. Maybe they won’t turn back into cavemen…
But what if instead of taking this lockdown as the beginning of “Kids Have Taken Over”, we gently nudge them back into the world of books. They could go on journeys with the Blyton stars, climb the Faraway Tree, or attend Quidditch lessons at Hogwarts, maybe find Narnia in cupboard full of clothes that don’t fit you anymore. Maybe, if they’re really lucky, like Charlie was, they might even win a Golden Ticket to a chocolate – no, we’ll give you the healthier option –book factory/store!
This World Book Day, we’re sending out 3 GOLDEN TICKETS every day for the children to find! All you have to do is head on over to www.mangobooks.net and grab a couple of books worth INR499 or more, click your heels three times and wish on the North star – and you might win a Golden Ticket! The lucky receiver of a golden ticket gets 30% off on any Mango Book. They can pick from any number of books from Mango’s bright library. There you go, quarantine time for the kids is sorted, isn’t it then?
