Kukdukoo Fest: A Celebration of Children's Literature and Art

Kukdukoo Fest is an annual event that takes place in various cities across India. It is a celebration of children's literature and art, with a focus on encouraging creativity and imagination in young minds. The festival brings together authors, speakers and artists to engage with children and inspire them to explore their own creativity.

On April 15, 2023 we participated in the Kukdokoo festival held at Kunskapsskolan Bengaluru, which is among the leading international schools in the city of Bengaluru. We primarily took part in the two-day family festival for the benefit of our 3-year-old son, Hethvick. 

As we had anticipated, our son had a great time participating in all the activities at the festival. During the fest, my son received balloons and a few goodies, enjoyed a nature walk, won an interactive game, and had the chance to take part in a school-organized experiment. 

The Kukdukoo festival is a good platform to nurture a love for reading in children's literature by exposing them to various stalls as well as provide a fun and engaging experience for young. 

The fest features a range of activities for children, including storytelling sessions, book readings, art workshops, and interactive games. Children can meet their favorite authors and ask them questions, and get their books signed. I am hopeful that my son will develop a strong habit of reading, and in a few years, he may even have the opportunity to meet some of the authors whose works he enjoys.

One of the highlights of the festival is the Kukdukoo Book Awards, which recognizes the best children's books of the year. Kukdukoo Fest has become a popular event for families and we saw lot of children and parents participating. 

We had a good time by participating in Kukdukoo Fest and attending events like the Kukdokoo festival gives me hope that my son as well as other children will be encouraged to cultivate a passion for reading and creativity. If you have children who love books and art, be sure to attend Kukdukoo Fest the next time it comes to your city!
