Tell the kids a new story everyday with some help from Storyweaver by Pratham Books, which has an extensive collection of children’s stories you can read for free.
No need to improvise on Cinderella or Hansel and Gretel for the umpteenth time while tucking your kids into bed. Just pick out a story or two from the endless collection of kid’s stories available at StoryWeaver by Pratham Books and read the kiddos a new one everyday. A platform for story writers and children’s authors to share their works with the plenty of kids waiting to read them, this is a win-win situation for both sides. With stories in many Indian languages, kids can even read stories in their own mother tongues.
Complete with colourful illustrations to match, these are a literary treat for any kid out there. They even have them at different reading levels, and kids are sure to find one that matches their pace. With stories like What’s Neema Eating Today? by Bijal Vachharajani and Kalpana’s Cycle by Sowmya Rajendran, there’s always something new and fun for the kiddies to read (or for you to read to them).
Read away without paying a penny as this platform is completely free. If you’ve got a penchant for children’s stories, try submitting your work to them and maybe your story can be featured on StoryWeaver and reach the right audiences. You can even translate existing stories to make them available to a wider audience.
This is also a great platform to find Indian stories and authors, and tell our children stories of their land and within their cultural context. Bedtime got a whole lot more fun!
