Reading is one of the 4 key LSRW skills required for LANGUAGE acquisition. Since reading allows a learner to learn INDEPENDENTLY, those who can read well often learn faster. Also, a reader can choose his OWN PACE of reading thus controlling the rate of information flow. Did you know that, on average, children who borrow more storybooks from school libraries score higher grades in English AND Science?
Textual descriptions lack the depth of information that videos can provide. This forces the reader to use his/her IMAGINATION to fill in information gaps. For this, the part of the brain that is associated with CREATIVITY is used. This part is not used when watching a video. Reading storybooks is also FUN and RELAXING. So a child learns, exercises his brain, and has fun at the same time. Smart, eh?
In the last 5 years, we have worked with some of the best schools in South India. Take a look at our achievements and our client list spanning schools across boards and cities.
On day back in 2009, we walked into a school in Mylapore, Chennai, and embarked on a long journey. On the way, we learnt that if there's one thing that we all love, it's a good story. Here's a video story of our journey . . .
Our team of storytellers is an eclectic mix of engineers, doctors, journalists, actors, writers, etc all bound by the love for stories, some of whom work with us full-time while the rest are freelancers.
Take a look at our upcoming storytelling visits and check if we're in your city or in your school anytime soon. If we are, then do say hello to us!
