Pratham Books Champion : Manasa Ramakrishnan

Manasa Ramakrishnan's sent us these pictures of the storytelling session conducted in her classroom.

 She said,
This is class 2A, in Chennai Primary School at Taramani, Chennai and these are my magicians. Paplu the giant was a great hit and we loved the read-aloud session. Happy Literacy Day and Thank you :)

Later, Manasa sent us a write-up about her session :
The Pratham Books story read-aloud was a great hit and my bunch of magicians(as I call them) totally loved the experience. They loved the main character and started predicting the next scene and the way the story was going to end. They are a bunch of emergent and pre-emergent learners, who probably now know 10 sentences in English. This is the amazing part, even though they couldn't understand the whole story in
English, when it was enacted out and broken down for them, they loved it. They even learnt that rhyme and wanted to help the characters in the story. They had their own discussion and 'moral' for the story.
Thank you once again Pratham Books for this wonderful experience. 

Thank you Manasa for spreading the joy of reading!
