apple

Scholastic India invites you and your students to join schools all across the country on January 24, 2020.

One Nation Reading Together is an annual event, where children in schools across the country will spend 20 minutes (preferably at 10 am) on the designated day, reading for fun and participating in other activities that celebrate reading as a pleasurable and enriching experience.

There are many ways to celebrate!

Reading is all about fun. Here are some things you can do, but there are many other things that you and your students might like to do:

  • Read class-wise or let the whole school read together
  • Read any book of your choice
  • Organise short skits or dress up as characters from books
  • Invite an author or a local celebrity to read and celebrate the event with your school
  • Make a bookmark or design a book cover

It's been wonderful being a part of the ONRT project. I congratulate Scholastic for the innovative initiative, as I firmly believe in empowering children through an enjoyable Reading Programme.

Hope to continue being a part of this for years to come!

If one has a book for a friend, one is never lonely. Books open a whole new world each time one reads. Youngsters need to fall in love with books to discover their own inner worlds. Thanks to ONRT, this message reaches kids at a very early age.

Kids reading on their own, teachers reading out to the tiny ones - oh, what a sight! ONRT not only brings students of different ages together but goes a long way in encouraging reading for pleasure and a love for books. Thank you Scholastic for this initiative!
