2017- A landmark year in India's history!
The Leading Reading Schools of India Awards (LRSIA) was initiated in the year 2014 with the objective of creating sensitive readers and aware citizens who care for our land, its people, environment and heritage. Every year for LRSIA, children read from a list of recommended books and then sent in their entries according to the theme for the year. In the year 2014 the theme was We, the Children of India; in 2015, it was Wild About Wildlife, whereas in 2016, we awarded the Children's Choice Award.
To commemorate the historic occasion of India's 70th year of Independence, Young India Books brought to you, INDIA MERI HAI.
A short video “India Meri Hai” was specially produced to share with your kids - in classrooms or at home. India’s leading wildlife photographers contributed to making this an inspirational video. WATCH THE VIDEO HERE
