We turn 5 today and we're renewing our commitment to quality education for all children with these very special Book Lists 📚⭐

Posted by Pallavi Kamath on September 08, 2020

Today is a significant day: It is International Literacy Day, and 5 years since the launch of StoryWeaver. The pandemic has only deepened our resolve to help achieve United Nations’  Sustainable Development Goal 4: Quality Education, by giving children around the world access to high-quality multilingual reading materials, and strengthening the publishing ecosystem to enable this. 

September is also the 5th anniversary of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). We are delighted to mark this shared milestone with a specially curated set of Book Lists, featuring storybooks that highlight concepts, values and principles related to the SDGs.

We hope that these Lists will be a useful resource for educators and look forward to them sparking meaningful conversations about subjects like equality, peace and climate action – and inspiring the next generation of readers and learners.

Thank you to all the wonderful people who make the StoryWeaver community such a rich and vibrant one: our young readers, committed educators, brilliant creators, talented translators, farsighted publisher partners, and encouraging donors. StoryWeaver now offers more than 24,000 open source storybooks in over 260 languages.

With your support we can make Literacy and Quality Education a reality for all children.

storyweaver has been a great gateway not just for children but for parents and teachers as well. Though we read books and illustrations from all around us, it is story weaver which transports us to a world where all things are always great. Happy completing yet another year and here's wishing you many more years of glory and a indelible mark in the hearts of millions of little ones and adults!!!!!!
