The Leading Reading Schools of India Award is an annual award established by Young India Books – India’s foremost review site of children’s books; to recognize and honour the five leading schools of the country; schools that believe in the power of the written word and inculcate a love for books and reading.
Written by Shivani Bajaj There is a reading which may not in the technical sense of the word qualify for reading, but it is making sense of sorts. Children as young as 4 years walk in to the Book Reading Club at times, (though formally the age group is meant to be 6-10 years).
The first batch of the LEC concluded in March 2014. There is a quiet pride is knowing that in multiple corners of Maharashtra, Rajasthan and Madhya Pradesh educators who are deeply engaged with children’s learning have refreshed their thinking and reflection around books.
