Session conducted on : 6th September
Number of kids : 70
Number of sessions : 1
Language the session was conducted in : Assamese

Story telling by old age person to the children
Story writing session
Signature by villagers

Takloo - the Little Salt Seller is a beautiful book. The story teaches a lot of concepts to children and illustrations are very attractive and eye catching.

They liked Banbai character most and we saw many smiles on their faces. On that day, they were free to tell or write anything. Thanks Pratham Books for such a good story and giving a smile on children's faces. It was a good experience for me also. I want to organize it again & again.


Thank you 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.
