Read-iscover Learning through Stories and Play...
at Little Readers' Nook!

Here's why learning through stories is so powerful... stories by their very nature fulfil all three criteria - as an introduction to new ideas, people and places, they pique curiosity; a story well told brings forth immense joy and stirs deep emotions. Weekly story sessions at Little Readers’ Nook combine emotive stories with visual imagery, mindful reading, child-led discovery, reflection and joyful play. The magic of our sessions? These fun activities, with zero formal teaching, effortlessly develop your child's:




Children learn to read in school, we take them a crucial step further - focusing on 'reading to learn' rather than 'learning to read'.

Do kids comprehend what they read? Are they curious? Eager to learn from books? Do they LOVE to read? Can they think beyond the book to form their own creative ideas? Can they communicate their ideas effectively and collaborate with other children to build on these ideas?

Kids build these life skills at Little Readers' Nook, skills that will help them navigate real life problems.

Experts believe the best learning outcomes occur when learning is:​ ​a) driven by curiosity,  b) joyful,  c) creates an emotional connect.

​​Our Story

Devaki bhujang gajare, a former software analyst, founded little readers' nook in mumbai in september 2012.  here's the story of her journey:

"After several years in New York, 2010 saw our little family head home to Mumbai, a cherubic toddler and a bagful of picture books in tow. Keen to pass on the joy of reading, I began sharing these books with the toddler and his friends, reinforcing language and creative thinking through joyful play woven around the stories. The children and their parents loved these magical story hours and clamoured for more!  

My idea also resonated with a unique audience - young mothers like myself on a sabbatical from corporate careers, passionate about books, education and kids and looking to do something meaningful with their free time - from their own home, on their own terms. A network of 'story educators' thus took root as these like-minded women joined us to take our program to their community, and Little Readers' Nook grew."

Hop onboard if you share our vision... together we can make a difference!
