A fun Life Skills class

to spark free thinking & expression in kids!

Icon - Methodology - 21st Century Life Skills.jpg

Would you rather discover your own truths, or be told what to do? Children are no different.

After a story about a tired mum who wanted a break, several kids went home from our class and offered to help with house chores. Parents were stunned! How did we teach their kids EMPATHY?

We did not! Kids discovered this LIFE SKILL on their own - as we relived it through the story.

Life skills offer essential tools to navigate all areas of life. Imagine your child facing bullying, ridicule, fear or failure. Don’t you want to equip them for these REAL WORLD CHALLENGES?

Enter Little Readers’ Nook, a safe, open, NO PREACHING space where kids tackle real world problems through DEEP DISCOVERY of their favourite stories, building critical life skills in the process:

  • Understanding feelings: Emotional intelligence

  • Can Do spirit: Growth mindset

  • Forming your own ideas: Creative thinking

  • Sharing ideas: Effective communication

Good stories mirror life, featuring hurdles children may face growing up. We provide a fun, stimulating environment for kids to dig deep and discover these lessons for life.


Our unique story approach encourages children to voice their feelings, questions and ideas. Kids love our class because we really listen when they speak!

Reading is at the heart of effective communication. Our Little Readers read to feed on words and ideas, reflect to imagine and understand, and finally, communicate powerfully to inspire!

Our questions make kids think.

Our stories help them understand.

Our listening sparks their self expression.

Join us in this adventure of a lifetime!

Our Story

A mother’s passion to make a difference led to the birth of Little Readers’ Nook in 2012.


Former software geek, eternal bookworm and now mum of 2, Devaki Bhujang Gajare believes in the power of reading to spark independent thinking.

As a young mum Devaki struggled to raise readers in a digital age. She soon identified the problem - children saw reading as a task, not pleasure! Devaki began reading to kids around her, bringing stories alive through conversations, art, games and drama.

The little ones were not just hooked, the leap in their thinking skills amazed parents.

As word spread, other mums and educators joined the cause. What began as a fun home experiment in 2012 blossomed into a beautiful collaborative enterprise called Little Readers’ Nook.

The initiative has grown beyond our wildest dreams since then, challenging over 10000 kids to read and think in over 25 cities across India and beyond today.
