One Nation Reading Together, 2018

Scholastic India invites you and your students to join schools all across the country on November 30, 2018, to celebrate the pleasures of reading.

One Nation Reading Together is an annual event, where children in schools across the country will spend 30 minutes (preferably at 12 noon) on the designated day, reading for fun and participating in other activities that celebrate reading as a pleasurable and enriching experience.

In 2017, an estimated 1600 schools around the country participated in this event. They read the specially written reading pledge and celebrated reading as a pleasurable and enjoyable activity.

We are proud to announce that the 2018 reading pledge has been written by the celebrated and award - winning author Paro Anand. The participating schools will receive a reading kit comprising two reading pledge posters (in English and Hindi), two graffiti wall posters and a certificate.

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.
We do hope you will participate in this celebration!

We would love to hear about your experiences of the event. In order to share them with everyone, we would like to put up your feedback and photographs on our website.
  • Two photographs.
  • A brief write-up from the principal as feedback.
