Green days
, blue days or orange days. Each of these colours can be linked to school.

But now that school is out, and the holidays are here, we bring you a rainbow of colourful things to do this holiday season. Take your pick!

Holiday Activity 1: READ

A book is always a good escape from your usual chores. Besides , it's one way to discover sounds, secrets and places. Here's how to get started!

  • Select a book. Don't shy away from comics. They are addictive but also, a good start into the world of books.

  • Join a book club or reading group. Once you finish reading a book, share your views with your friends. If you can't find a reading group, don't postpone the exercise. Kickstart your own group within your friend circle or classmates! You may soon turn into a bookworm.

  • Visit your neighborhood library. Have a chat with the librarian about your interests and ask him or her to recommend a suitable book for you. If you can't locate a library, visit a bookstore. For a beginner, it's a good idea to buy a book. Once done, you can dive in a sea of words -- at your own pace.


On the bookshelf

Besides reading old favourites like Enid Blyton, Agatha Christie and Sherlock Holmes, here  are some good book titles that will nudge you in the right direction.
