  • Going to School in a Mud Desert
  • Going to School on Wheels
  • Going to School in a Tribe
  • Going to School on a Mountaintop
  • Going to School on a Railway Station Platform
  • Going to School in a Temple
  • Going to School in the Dark
  • Going to School by the Sea
  • Going to School on an Island in the Middle of a Lake
  • Going to School under a Mango Tree

Some of the responses of the children are - 

“I found these books in my school library and I enjoyed reading them.”

Saurav, Grade8, Arpan School, New Delhi

 

“I really like these schools. The children learn so much and have fun too. I wish I could also go to a school like this.”

Priya Rana, Grade8, Arpan School, New Delhi

 

“From this book we learnt that it is important to work together and to help others. We got to know that there are so many poor children in our country who find it difficult to get to school like Haider who goes to school on a wheelchair.”

Rahul Kumar, Grade8, Arpan School, New Delhi

 

“My school is different because we not only get good education but it helps children like me who cannot pay for education get free education.”

Mohan Babu, Grade8, Arpan School, New Delhi

 

“We usually do not get such nice books in our school and no one asks us such insightful questions as well. We do not get home work which involves going out and doing exciting things like interviewing the fishermen. I loved reading these  books.”

Shivani Pal, Grade8, Arpan School, New Delhi

 

“I liked these school a lot because the children in these schools get to learn about so many different things and they learn all this in entertaining ways like through a puppet show.”

Mahesh, Grade8, Arpan School, New Delhi

 

“I read about children who are not able to study because they are poor and how these schools help them. I realized how fortunate we are to be able to go to a good school.”

Rohit, Grade8, Arpan School, New Delhi
