The “Nali-kali” methodology of teaching is popular and is being implemented in several Districts of Karnataka. There was a felt need expressed by teachers, parents and experts for some new reading material for children based on this methodology. From this was born the idea of producing a set of Graded Readers. Janashala and UNICEF entrusted this task to us and we had to prepare 50 Readers for the 1st Standard and 50 Readers for the 2nd Standard, which would blend with the Nali-Kali Learning Ladder.

A ‘Reader’, as the name suggests, provides reading material for children. The reading material is numbered and contents are graded from simple to more complex reading skills. Thus, as children climb from Reader number 1 to 2 and 3 and so on, they will encounter progressively newer letters; newer words will be added to their vocabulary and they will read longer sentences. Unlike in a textbook, there is no pressure on the child to prepare for an exam. Each child can proceed at her/his individual pace, since it is not an activity that involves the entire class. Children are given the joy of discovering something on their own.

The set of 50 Readers for the 1st standard are under print and will soon reach young hands in schools. We hope these attractive, and enjoyable Readers will create the love of reading in these little children.
