Pratham Books Champion : Pavitra Jayaraman and Anush Shetty

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.

Pavitra Jayaraman shared these pictures from the storytelling session she conducted with Anush Shetty. She also wrote to say :

Anush Shetty and I read with the kids at Premanjali trust. They were so excited about Zainab's super illustrations that we has printed out on A3 sheets, that they started to narrate the story using them as props. And then an impromptu, draw Paplu session, in which we found an artist.

Thank you Pavitra Jayaraman and Anush Shetty for spreading the joy of reading!
