“A Wisdom of Words, with its rich and varied collection of readings, extends the emotional and intellectual horizons of students in our schools, and so prepares them for the modern world. Several of its selections are by Indian Writers; some focus on the beauty of the natural world and threats to its survival; others draw young readers into the magical world of adventure and science fiction. The Collection of graded readers ensures that students learn language skills without losing out on the pleasures of reading.”

“These books stand out alone in a system where rote learning and fact-pushing is what a child has to endure as a substitute for real education. Your collection of inspiring stories and the exercise at the end offer a ray of hope, that there is something worth sending your child to school for. Kudos to your team, for doing your bit to improve the quality of education in India.”
