Pratham Books Champion : Arthi Anand-Navaneeth

Arthi Anand is the first champion to complete ten sessions of the TENTASTIC campaign. Arthi's tenth session also happened to be on the occasion of the 'One Day - One Story' campaign. Arthi conducted 4 storytelling sessions to celebrate International Literacy Day. The first one (pictured here) took place at her home.

A lover of stories, a Tulika author, a weekend story teller (Art's Tales) , a Saffrontree reviewer, this mom of two ensures she gets her fill of stories and shares the joy they bring. She also blogs at http://artstales.blogspot.in and http://abouttimenow.blogspot.in.

Thank you Arthi for spreading the joy of reading !

In its third edition of the 'One Day - One Story' campaign, Pratham Books was joined by 1300+ storytellers who conducted 1500+ storytelling sessions. More than 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. In 2012, Pratham Books initiated the One Day-One Story initiative on the occasion of International Literacy Day . We will be sharing the stories of all our volunteer storytellers (Pratham Books Champions) through our blog.
