Production of 5 new AniBooks for reading, completed!

Dear Friends, 

I hope you are all staying safe and healthy and if possible got your vaccines too! 

I mentioned in my previous update that we were working on 5 new AniBooks in 3 languages namely English, Hindi and Tamil. I am happy to share that we completed the production of those stories as planned. 

With Oracle’s support, we produced the following 5 AniBooks: 

  1. Sam's Chirstmas Present
  2. The Village of 5 Poles
  3. Kanchha, the Rhino
  4. Who is our friend?
  5. Just the Way Iam 

AniBooks are animated stories powered by Same Language Subtitling (SLS). Please view them by clicking on the links below:

We have partnered with BookBox, a social enterprise born out of PlanetRead’s SLS innovation. BookBox has been creating AniBooks with SLS and is using its YouTube channel to promote reading. All AniBooks are all available free on BookBox’s YouTube channels, which have over 100 million views and more than 800K subscribers across channels.   

AniBooks are platform agnostic and available in the form of CDs, DVDs, internet downloads, mobile Apps and videos that can be played on TVs too. Usually produced in English the first time, they can be easily converted into any language. They currently available in a mix of over 50+ languages (15+ Indian and 35+ international).
