quality books

Thirty years of experience in bringing great reading to every child, helping new/diffident readers come to grade-level reading, increasing their ability to understand BIG ideas and how to put them to work!

High-quality content and design to match the learning needs of children at different reading levels!

No wonder about 9.1 million children have learnt to read with us — (80% of our books go only to libraries; we have taken a very conservative 5 readers/book to arrive at this number.)

exciting and rich content

To support close reading and reading for meaning, our books develop in readers a deeper understanding of social issues that confront them; personal leadership and imagination that elude them; cultural and environmental awareness that raises their self esteem. In 8 Indian languages

we celebrate girls

Katha books often have girls as protagonists. They help boys understand why they hold up only half the sky; and why respecting girls is a win-win-situation for all!
