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.

Launching our first book

Book 1 – Flourish – A Book of Stories contains 11 engaging stories with colourful illustrations. The stories inculcate important values such as environmental consciousness, self-management, health & hygiene, emotional awareness, and more, while engaging children in the interesting narratives and giving them an immersive reading experience.

Flourish aims to empower underserved children. The revenue from the books will be used to provide free books to children in need.

Why the bilingual approach?

By adopting the bilingual technique, Flourish aims to inculcate better reading comprehension, while improving the native language skills of the learners.

The new National Education Policy emphasises on the importance of bilingual approach to learning and recommends the use of learning material in learners’ mother tongues.

Bilingual education is a proven methodology in garnering the interest of students towards learning languages.

Research suggests that learning English the bilingual way, i.e. by leveraging the native language skills, leads to the quicker grasping of new words and complex concepts, as a result of the familiarity of the native language.

Various research studies suggest that early focus on bilingualism can result in significant social understanding  and cognitive development in children.

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.
