Pratham Books Champion : Anubhuti Krishna

This International Literacy Day, Pratham Books has taken a 1000 steps towards a 'Reading India'

What started as a small step by Pratham Books to spread the joy of reading has become a movement. Last year Pratham Books initiated the One Day-One Story initiative on the occasion of International Literacy Day and we conducted over 250 storytelling sessions. This year we are delighted that over a 1000 sessions are happening across the length and breadth of the country.We will be sharing the stories of all our champions through our blog.

Anubhuti Krishna sent us the following note and pictures about her storytelling session. Anubhuti is a stay at home mother of two young girls, she is also a training consultant and likes to write and read in the time that she gets to herself. She loves collecting children's book and reading lots of stories to her girls every night. She blogs at : http://isight-anubhuti.blogspot.in/

I conducted two story telling sessions. 

The first one was conducted for the girls in our apartment complex. We started with around five girls and soon there were around ten of them. We read some other stories from Pratham books as well. Sringeri Srinivas was one of them.

The second was in a home for street boys in Dwarka, New Delhi. There were around thirty boys, from age six to fourteen. They loved Paplu and they had a great time. We also told them some more stories, clicked lots of pictures. Contrary to my apprehension all kids sat in complete silence when the story was on and were very active when we talked to them and did a quiz on the story.

Thank you for providing us with such a beautiful opportunity.

Thank you Anubhuti for spreading the joy of reading!
