Arthi Anand Navaneet shared these pictures of the storytelling sessions she conducted this year. Arthi is the voice of Art's Tales with Arthi Anand, a weekend story telling initiative.
This year was a little different for Arthi. Having moved to a new country, she still managed to conduct a session from where she became a #PBChamp 5 years ago!
In Arthi's words ...
Ejjipura Ananda Vidyalaya is where I turned into a Pratham Books Champion five years ago.
Despite some network issues on Skype, the connection did not falter with one of my favourite story groups!
The story helped us touch upon unlikely friendships, the 'elephant bird' origin and animal protection. The children indulged in colouring as well.
Arthi's second session took place in Jakarta, Indonesia. Apart from the story, finding the elephant bird's home on the map and lots of colouring ensued!
Thank you Arthi for spreading the joy of stories.
In its fifth edition of the 'One Day - One Story' campaign, Pratham Books was joined by 3000+ storytellers who conducted 3200+ 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 stories from the International Literacy Day Celebrations held in 2016.
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.
