Nehal Desai sends us the following pictures from her storytelling session. The book nook, started by Nehal Desai (MBA from Jamnalal Bajaj Institute of Management Studies) is a reading library and an after school club. The main aim is to encourage reading and inculcate a reading habit in kids.  The book nook organises weekend story telling sessions for kids, and a library where kids can read and borrow books.Visit their facebook page.

What started as a small step by Pratham Books to spread the joy of reading has become a movement.
