A Russian cafe for kids in Jerusalem's Book Fair

.

Off in the Russian books corner, in a sweet little cafe setting, young kids found one place to enjoy themselves at Jerusalem's recent International Book Fair.

Some were doing craft activities with a mom or dad.
Some were dressed up in props, e.g. babooshkas, I guess in order to do some role playing.
But the religious kids were glued to the screen, where I think a Russian fairytale was being shown.
It was their one chance, because strict Orthodox Jewish homes have no television.

Today's Theme Day at City Daily Photo is about cafe chairs.
Visit CDP bloggers around the world and see what they came up with.

I find it so interesting to know that in Israel it's compulsory to use solar energy for water heating Dina, it's not compulsory here but so many people do it just because it makes so much sense and it saves money.

Wow! Books and coffee. Now that's a combination that could keep me busy for hours... anyplace.

It is so good that many children visit book fair. And Russian corner sounds like I could stay for a book and cup of tea too.

Friends, I hate to disappoint you, but when I said "a sweet little cafe SETTING," I didn't mean it was a real cafe with coffee. It was just a pretend cafe at the week-long International Book Fair.
