#International Literacy Day with Pratham Books celebrated at Al Qamar

#InternationalLiteracyDay was celebrated with Al Qamar Academy as one of the #PBChamps. 5 separate sessions at Al Qamar were a part of the One Day, One Story effort from Pratham Books.  The lovely story, A Cloud of Trash, was read out and discussed.

Children loved the storyline - it is something everyone of us can relate to.  The illustrations had them fully engaged as they followed how the trash littering girl transforms into an anti garbage activist.

The older children discussed the points at the back - how we can reduce trash, how we can recycle.  They've been reading the poster which outlines how long it takes for trash to decompose, and its an eyeopener.  

Wonderful initiative - combining two causes close to Al Qamar hearts - reading and the environment!!

Thanks Pratham Books!!
