The following story was sent to us by Sanchita G. Sanchita says,
I am a bookworm because my parents introduced me to the magical and endearing world of stories. Everyone, however, is not so lucky.
As a#PBChamp I read a delightful tale about a boy who wanted a drum. There was an abundance of joy and an awesome community coming together to spread the joy of reading.
I had a marvelous time reading a simple yet beautiful story to a group of about 50 avid and attentive listeners from slums in and around government school at Mataur village, Mohali. And they had a good time as well along with some song and laughs too.
Thank you Sanchita for spreading the joy of reading!
In its fourth edition of the 'One Day - One Story' campaign, Pratham Books was joined by 2500+ storytellers who conducted 2300+ storytelling sessions. Many, many 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.
View more pictures from the International Literacy Day Celebrations held in 2015. This blog contains stories sent in by all our champions. Browse through the blog for more stories.
You can also go through the tags on the right side of the blog to find stories happening in your own city.
