Story Revolution


Recently stumbled upon a website called Story Revolution and this is what they do:
At Story Revolution we select and source children’s books from second-hand bookstores around India.

We choose books that are exceptionally warm and spirited, cherished by children all over the world, and yet often difficult to find in India. Some of these books are only available as imports in second-hand stores, where cartons of books have to be sifted through to find a few wonderful books.

Most of these books are Newbery medal or honor books, ALA (American Library Association) best or notable books, winners of the Laura Ingalls Wilder medal or other prestigious international awards. The others are hand-picked for their spirit and excellence.

We would like every child to be able to access these books. We prefer to give concessions when books are going to be shared by a lot of children, and frequently give varying concessions to small schools, libraries, etc.
