Kolkata, Apr 5 (IBNS): Story, a bookstore chain by Primarc in Kolkata, had hosted its first pop-up workshop for kids in association with Ideate Playlabs on Sunday.

The first pop-up story telling workshop at Story was on the famous "Toto the Auto." In these stories, Toto and his driver Pattu go about solving problems, helping others and having loads of fun along the way. These are stories that gently teach kids timeless values like kindness, bravery, confidence along with the modern-day life skills needed to be happy in the world of today.

Ideate Playlabs aims to empower the children to be a self-directed and lifelong learner.
