- Folktales and Myths.
“Welcome to StoryWeaver, a digital repository of multilingual stories for children from Pratham Books. Now, every child can have access to an endless stream of stories in her mother tongue to read and enjoy.” (StoryWeaver)
The stories are levelled so children, parents or teacher should be able to choose appropriate stories fairly easily. They are presented under three headings, Editor’s Picks, Most read and New Arrivals. They can be filtered by types, levels, publisher or language.
Book Maker Feature
Students can create their own books with the book maker app built into the website. There are over 13000 images available which can be used for illustration and one can also upload their own images for their book if they wish.
The whole of Storyweaver is openly licenced under Creative Commons which means children can re-write any books, remix several books, build on someone else’s work, publish it etc. It is a great site to learn about Creative Commons, remix literacy and story writing!
