A big thank you to all the volunteers who made it a special day for the kids.Thank you Hema,Vani,Jayashree,Bhavani,Gautam,Susitha and sowmya.

Thank you SHLOK Foundation 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 making reading contagious.

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.
