Salient features of the book
A study states that 1 in 2 Indian children can’t read books meant for their reading levels. Through Flourish, we aim to solve the problem by working on reading comprehension using a bilingual method. Also by instilling values and breaking stereotypes, we have adopted a gender-sensitized approach throughout the learning journey. Thereby covering all the important learning aspects at minimum expenditure.

Towards a diverse and inclusive world
Our worldview is significantly shaped by what we read, listen to, and watch. As our Flourish books can play a crucial role in shaping the worldview of the children, we have given special emphasis on making the content as gender-affirmative and inclusive as possible. The Inclusivity Index provided for each book helps teachers draw learner’s attention to the important values and gender transformative scenarios in the stories. Additionally, the mappings will also help educators identify the biases present in the book and have conversations around them with the students. We believe every positive reform starts with acknowledgement.
