Dubai: A five year old Indian boy in Dubai achieved the “India Book of Records” as an appreciative entry for reading 20 story books nonstop for an hour.
Aayush KS is listed under “Appreciation for Reading Story Books for One Hour Without a Break” at the age of five years and three months. Originally from Kerala, India, he read stories like Goldilocks and the Three Bears, Sneaky Fox and Red Hen, Rapunzel, Heidi, The Little Mermaid, Cinderella and many more. His effort was confirmed in November 2020.
The kindergarten student at JSS International School, who lives in Discovery Gardens, also has a YouTube channel about reading books, called “Reading Room by Aayush,” to encourage other children in the same age group to read books. His one-hour reading session is also visible on the channel.
His father Supal KG said, “Aayush gets calls from authors around the world asking him to read their books on his channel. He loves to read all the books and he even reads the newspaper. We have to buy him a lot of books; the last time we bought her a 40 pound bundle together. He goes through this quickly. “
He added that Aayush also enjoys playing in his spare time, after completing distance learning for school.
