Want to improve your child’s reading skills? 

Reading for Life is back with a completely new collection of books and exciting workshops. Over 1800 jubilant kids embarked on the reading adventure in 2020 and 2021 from cities across India. Especially curated for 7 to 14-years old, the programme aims to take your child on a journey from ‘Learning to Read’ to ‘Reading to Learn’ and help them grow as an engaged reader. The three weeks online programme challenges children to read at least one book every week from our curated online collection of e-books, audiobooks and comics.

The main objectives of this program are:

  • Promote the love for reading among children.
  • Help children grow as motivated, confident and engaged readers.
  • Introduce children to a wide range of authors and literature.
  • Encourage children to participate in group activities and help them develop their writing and speaking skills.
  • Enhance their creativity, presentation and independent thinking skills.
  • Provide children with a happy and memorable learning experience.

Workshop details: For each age group, there will be two set of workshops spread over two weekends of 1-1.5 hour each. Please check the documents section for complete details.
