Pratham Books Champion : Minakshi Prabhu

This story was sent to us by Minakshi Prabhu.

I had a great time with my story session. The sessions was in the govt school at Tippasandra, Bangalore. I could really see that sessions like these will help the children because many of the children at a sixth or seventh grade were struggling with reading the English text book.

I also covered the smaller grades - did about 3 sessions and used both Paplu the giant as well as Phani's funny chappals. I started the session with asking the children to spend 30 mins a day reading / revieiwng what they did in school. I ended the session reiterating the same as well as promising them to come every month once to read with them.

Thank you Minakshi for spreading the joy of reading!

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.
