Pravin Bhasin sent us the following story about sessions conducted by Books for All. 'Books For All' is engaged in setting up Library - cum- Learning Centres in low -end Primary and Junior Schools where this facility is non- existent. Presently, they have 3 centres in Delhi - NCR. You can find more information about the work they do on their website or their Facebook page.
We celebrated 7th Sept as desired by Pratham Books with Paplu Rakchas in our three centres.
The event was not just plain book reading but with children enacting various roles.
Over 100 children took part in the event.
Thank you Books for All for spreading the joy of reading!
