Pratham Books Champion : Joanna Sundharam

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.

This story was sent by Joanna Sundharam. Joanna is a 2013 Fellow at Teach For India, Delhi. She teaches 40 girls of 3rd Standard at Nigam Pratibha Vidyalaya, Sarai Pipal Thala, New Delhi. She loves sharing stories, playing games, singing and dancing with her kids.

It was day filled with laughter and joy, when 40 girls (The Angels) from Nigam Pratibha Vidyalaya, Sarai Pipal Thala came together to share the story of Paplu, The giant. They realised Paplu was a lot like them, good-natured, peace-loving and sometimes forgetful. After listening to the story, all the girls drew pictures of their favourite part of the story.

Thank you Joanna for spreading the joy of reading!
