STORYBOOKS

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, localised content in Indian languages, and easy access, our books help children overcome the barriers to reading and become lifelong learners.

Our books are categorised across four levels –

  • Emergent
  • Early
  • Independent
  • Fluent Readers

– based on reading proficiency rather than age. This encourages children to read in a non-judgmental way. Our deep commitment to our mission of ‘a book in every child’s hand’ has also seen us invest in many innovations like open source digital and audio books to draw children into the world of reading.

The Power of
PICTURE BOOKS

Reading is powerful.

Books are:

  • Mirrors, showing our own realities
  • Windows to someone else’s world
  • Sliding glass doors inviting us to step out and experience unfamiliarities.

Books are agents of change, wielders of magic and beacons of hope, capable of altering the course of our existence because everything begins with an idea.

The stories we create are the disseminators of ideas that shape imaginations, enable an understanding of realities, celebrate own voices, challenge stereotypes and equip children with tools for social and emotional learning.

“When children cannot find themselves reflected in the books they read, or when the images they see are distorted, negative, or laughable, they learn a powerful lesson about how they are devalued in the society of which they are a part.”

Rudine Sims Bishop,

scholar and educator

“Picture books are a necessary and important step towards building empathetic readers, empathy being a resource that our country and the world in general could use in healthy doses.”

Rajiv Eipe,

award-winning illustrator and author

“Children’s literature, as someone once explained it to me, is a big responsibility as it’s the first portal that human beings have to the cultural world and to their understanding of the arts, the idea of stories that aren’t about themselves, to share concepts of something greater than themselves.”

Oliver Jeffers,

picture book maker
