Review for Planetread, Piedmont, CA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I am a BookBox volunteer for my language, Telugu. I am inspired to volunteer for it for 2 reasons: Quality and Service. BookBox stories are of great quality. Their attention to details that contribute to its quality and the persistence and patience with which they achieve it, impresses me and inspires me. The motive of service by making literacy not just kid friendly but people friendly in general, through planet read is is what makes it dear to me.

Review for Planetread, Piedmont, CA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I know by experience that subtitles greatly enhance reading ability in children. Watching kids' programs with subtitles in English is one factor other than reading books with them that has greatly contributed to my kids' reading skills. There is no doubt that SLS program of planetread will benefit a big portion of India's population that has not had chance to continue education or the time and leisure to sit down with books. Television in India reaches a greater number of people than even public libraries. Not only that, since most education in India is encouraged in English Medium, local language literacy gets a great boost through planetread's SLS program.

My volunteering experience has given me great satisfaction. It has given me good friends. I keep learning a great deal about story telling and passion for education through my continued contribution.

Role:  Volunteer & I have been lucky to do my part by contributing to BookBox, one of Planetread's many activities. I am glad to be able to help make these quality story telling available in Telugu.
