The May Newsletter

Two Decades: It is still about the journey, not the destination.

And with that, we marked our 20th anniversary. A big thank you to all who have been supporting us throughout. We have seen kids grow up and become their own people, with their own ideas. From new interns to customers and past employees who bring their children to the store now, a big thank you! We hope to grow with the same love and support to keep the magic of children’s books alive.

Eureka! Book Club in April

This month marked the beginning of Eureka’s very own book club! Facilitated by Harshita Gupta, the founder of TalesAhoy, this is a place for kids of all ages to get together, hear a story, learn a thing or two, and most importantly, have as much fun as they can. 

For ages 6 to 8, we picked The Last Bear by  Hannah Gold, a book about a lonely bear struggling to keep up with climate change. The session began with reading the first chapter and understanding the concepts of friendship, and loneliness, and finding out where exactly polar bears live and how. 

In the second edition of the Book Club for ages 4 to 6, Harshita chose the book, Library Lion by Michelle Knudsen. 

Beginning with a lion hunt, the kids roared through the hour dancing, singing, and reading the story. The session ended with the children solving a maze puzzle, and creating their book covers – all of them good and some of them amazing.


Schools and Book Fairs

Between April 12 to 20, Eureka! conducted book fairs in three schools, Carmel International, Gyan Bharti, and The School of Specialised Excellence.  

As part of the School of Specialised Excellence’s event, Literaria in Dwarka, Eureka put up a stall to showcase the range of books that are available for children. Literaria is an event that promotes literature and reading in government schools. SoSE’s headline event that week was a session with author-illustrator Sigrun Srivastava. 

If you are looking for that caringly curated collection of books that you would want in your school library or would like to conduct a book fair in your school, please reach out to Suhail Hasan at
