Books

Our storybooks are for emergent as well as confident readers and comprise a range of genres including fiction, non-fiction, drama and poetry. With colourful illustrations, localized content in Indian languages, and easy access, our books help children overcome the barriers to reading and become lifelong learners.

We have also invested in many innovations like open source digital and audio books to draw children into the world of reading. Because reading is the first step to literacy.

Story Cards

A reading product unique to Pratham Books, story cards are mini storybooks. They are book-like in terms of shape, size, colour and matter but are extremely cost-efficient. They have been used by organisations at a very large scale and have helped millions of children improve their reading skills because of their enjoyable stories and colourful illustrations presented in a durable, laminated format.

Library-in-a-Classroom

We designed a portable, wall-mounted, modular unit of richly illustrated storybooks to enable schools across India to have libraries in their classrooms. With the LIC, children enjoy invaluable physical proximity to printed books, which in turn encourages them to read and further their emotional and intellectual development.

Reading Champions

The Reading Champions movement is a localized, self-organized, volunteer-driven series of events that encourages people to conduct storytelling sessions in their neighbourhoods. Galvanized annually on International Literacy Day through the ‘One Day, One Story’ campaign, the idea is to use storytelling as a tool to help children fall in love with reading.
