Pratham Books Champion : Lakshmi Guruprasad

For International Literacy Day (8th September), we had a dream - we wished that 100 people would volunteer to conduct storytelling sessions across the country. We ended up finding more than 250 champions to conduct storytelling sessions across the country. We will be sharing the stories of all our champions through our blog.

This story was sent by Lakshmi Guruprasad. She wrote:

Me along with my kids went to Govt. lower primary school, Yelenahalli, Bangalore. We had about 50 students for the session. All of them enjoyed the story and the session was interactive. After finishing the story telling session, involved them in writing Rangoli and also got them to do an activity: Train Craft. Once done, we distributed Home Made chocolates to all the kids. We had about 40 more kids(total 90) who were part of Anganawadi(Really small kids of Pre School age). All of us including my children really enjoyed and it was indeed a different experience altogether for us. Came back feeling really contented.

Thank you Lakshmi for spreading the joy of reading!
