fREADom BuZz is the official fREADom monthly newsletter. Here’s what we’ve been up to in May 2021!
A term that we often hear these days is ‘growth mindset’. It is the belief that our basic attributes can be developed and improved through hardwork and dedication. It helps us take risks, accept challenges, break barriers, and achieve our goals in various aspects of life. More often that not, amazing innovations result from this. On the other hand, fear of making mistakes and failing often leads us to avoid challenges and unfamiliar experiences. It robs us of the unique joy and success we may have achieved by taking the less trodden path.
Through fREADom, we seek to help young minds fall in love with reading and learning. With content created and curated exclusively to appeal to the sensibilities of young modern learners, we have created a virtual garden where children experience the joy of learning.
READ WITH JOY!
