Once upon a time, a book-crazy young mum took a sabbatical from work to be home with her baby. She had time on her hands, a dream to carve a creative niche for herself and the most exciting children's books ever tumbling out of her closets! Little did anyone guess, a magical transformation was about to happen.
Fast forward a few weeks and kids from the neighbourhood were spending hours in her cosy reading nook, rapt in stories and book discussions, turning endless picture book pages with wonder. The astounding leap in their vocabulary and imagination had flabbergasted mums clamouring for more and the idea for a unique educational initiative was born.
The year was 2012, the city Mumbai, the mum, former software geek and present Little Readers' Nook book-lover-in-chief, Devaki Bhujang Gajare, and the initiative...
Little Readers’ Nook - a joyous experience, where the power of stories from world-class children's literature is channeled through mindful reading, story-based imagery and drama, stimulating discussions and imaginative play to effortlessly develop children's language and thinking skills.
Children are taught to read and write in school, we take them a crucial step further. Can kids comprehend what they read? Do they love to read? Can they think beyond books to form their own creative ideas? Can they communicate these ideas effectively and collaborate with others to build on them?
Our philosophy resonates with like-minded mothers the world over looking to make a difference in children's lives - in their own neighbourhood and on their own terms.
Little Readers' Nook continues to grow as these mums join our network of story educators to take our program to their community.
An idea born of a mother's desire to meaningfully engage her child is today a diverse team of over 60 talented women across 25 cities in India and overseas, taking thousands of children deep into the magical world of books - to shape avid Readers, creative Thinkers and effective Communicators.
We invite you to join the excitement - find a Nook near you, or join our team to take Little Readers' Nook to your community!
LANGUAGE ARTS through CHILDREN'S LITERATURE
Little Readers' Nook
Made in India... Shaping avid Readers, creative Thinkers, effective Communicators across the Globe!
"When children read for pleasure, get 'hooked on books', they acquire, involuntarily and without conscious effort, nearly all of the so-called language skills people are so concerned about." - S Krashen, Professor Emeritus of Education, Author and Linguist
"Reading for pleasure can easily sound like some kind of wishy-washy, soft option, while instructional stuff like learning to read through synthetic phonics sounds tough and purposeful. In actual fact, research shows children who read for pleasure achieve better school performance than those that don’t." - Michael Rosen, Renowned Children's Laureate, Author and Poet
Children's books offer a rich source of linguistic input - diverse vocabulary, complex sentence structure, sophisticated play on words, interesting multicultural themes.
Ask yourself - would you rather rote learn word lists and grammar rules or intuitively pick up nuances of language and vocabulary in context, through books you actually enjoy reading? We rest our case!
At Little Readers' Nook, we curate the best in world children's literature and design open-ended activities to enhance children's appreciation of these books.
Kids learn to think creatively and independently, and practice using the written and spoken word to effectively communicate their ideas - the goal of Language Arts.
Our 3 age-appropriate levels together form a complete Language Arts program, with a balanced focus on all 4 of its elements - reading, writing, speaking and listening - in the context of outstanding children's literature. Choose the level appropriate for your child's age and proficiency.
