We received a lovely email from Neena Nambiar who is a teacher trainer and educator at Sadhana Village School at Kule near Pune. She has been using our books and wrote to tell us about her experience:
Pratham books are an affordable and attractive resource for Story Telling for our Early Childhood (3-6 years) group in rural areas. Teachers find the stories easy to relate with and easy to share with young children. The beautiful illustrations fire the sense of imagination in the teachers and children. Themes of the stories are wide to choose from according to lesson plans and topics. Length of stories are of right size for young children to revise and to learn by heart. We have tried to enact these stories and have been successful. We also use the books to introduce our children to different languages. For example : we read out stories in Hindi for our Marathi speaking children to enhance their language skills. Also the vocabulary used in the stories is of high order.Thank you for your feedback Neena! If you have a story to share about how you use our books in your school/NGO, please email us at web(at)prathambooks(dot)org.
