The future is open, exciting and collaborative.

We are passionate believers and advocates of open licensing. As a result, most of our books are available under Creative Commons licenses, enabling educators and individuals to use, repurpose or version our books to suit the needs of children anywhere in the world. This ‘open’ model has led to our storybooks finding new life in new languages, as well as completely new forms like audio books, YouTube videos, braille books and digital apps.

Open licensing has enabled us to scale up enormously, but flexibly, in a way that serves our mission of putting ‘a book in every child’s hand’. It powers our most ambitious endeavour in this area Pratham Books’ StoryWeaver, a digital repository of multilingual stories for children. In a little over two years, this first-of-its-kind platform has grown from 800 stories to over 9,000 stories in 115 languages. All the stories on the platform are free to read, download, print, translate, adapt, and re-level.

Creative Commons licenses are helping us build a more equitable, open, and innovative world that allows greater collaboration, creativity, and most importantly access.
