Celebrate International Literacy Day by Reading a Book

The day is finally here! It is International Literacy Day today and we can't tell you how excited we are. 250+ champions are joining us to celebrate International Literacy Day across the country. We have people conducting sessions with children in each and every state. Take a look at this map to see where all our champions are situated. Isn't that wonderful? 

And we've now figured out a way in which you can be a part of these celebrations.

If you want to organise an impromptu storytelling session on September 8th, you can download Susheela's Kolams in English, Hindi, Kannada, Marathi, Telugu along with a suggested activity sheet from this link: http://bit.ly/Nfy6ff. You can read to your child or get all the kids in your apartment to come together at a place and tell them Susheela's story.

If you do organise a session, please send us a writeup of your session with pictures/video too? You can email us at web at prathambooks dot org - we promise we'll post it on our blog!

If you are on Twitter, share your updates by using the this hashtag - #PBChamps. 

We are updating all the pictures that champions are sending us on this page.

To attend public events that are happening in your city, take a look at this list.

Join Pratham Books and over 250 storytellers in all of India's 28 states as we weave a story that unites thousands of children in India on International Literacy Day
