Pratham Books Champion : Arthi Anand

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.

Arthi Anand shared pictures from the 2 storytelling sessions she conducted. A lover of stories, a Tulika author, a weekend story teller ( Art's Tales) , a Saffrontree reviewer, this mom of two ensures she gets her fill of stories and shares the joy they bring. She also blogs at http://artstales.blogspot.in and

Her 1st storytelling was conducted at her apartment.

She said : Kids came all bright and alert as did some moms for an 8.30 AM story session- Hurray to the Power of stories!!

Arthi's second storytelling session was at Ananda Vidyalaya. From Arthi's blog:
Had great fun doing this session twice.
Once in English to a privileged set of kids and once in English with a smattering of Tamil & Hindi to an equally eager but less exposed set of children

Cannot believe I have been going to AV for the last one year- it all began with a Pratham Champion session in 2012.

Thank you Arthi  for spreading the joy of reading!
