Pratham Books is a not-for-profit trust that seeks to publish high-quality books for children at a affordable cost in multiple Indian languages. Pratham Books is trying to create a shift in the paradigm for publishing children’s books in India. The low cost model proves that children’s literature can be attractive and affordable and therefore more accessible.

Books are to the child’s mind what food is to the stomach. Join us as we try to make a difference to the lives of 200 million children!

There are a number of NGOs who are working with children in India to improve basic literacy skills of reading, writing and mathematics. As more and more children became readers, there was a need for good content and there were few publishing sources that were willing to supply this content at affordable costs and in multiple Indian languages.

In the five years since its birth, Pratham Books has published 170 books written and illustrated specially for children. Each title has been translated into several Indian languages, enabling us to offer affordable books to children across the country.

We are happy to have put a book in the hands of 7 million children. But we cannot rest until we have fulfilled our mission of “A book in every child’s hand”.
