This is a great initiative taken by Katha and Hewlett packard in consultation with Prasoon Joshi, for encouraging the habit of reading and writing in the children. All the stories are written by children and tell us something about their imagination and their viewpoint and their beliefs and dreams.And some are a lesson to even adults.

Here the young writes weaves the story in her own way to tell us the origin of sunflower.

3..the greatest Melissa Chen

Here is a story within a story, where a boy learns through an incident that one should be always nice to others and learn sharing.

3..a dream come Vinayasree Vinod
HA girl resents her brother for not letting her watch TV when she has finished her exams even and she wishes that she was single, but then one day when she does everything without his brother, she misses him and wants him back.

4..the changing Anupriya agarwal

Story of a girl and her pet cat.

9..The perfect Aniruddh K Bhargavi
This is a futuristic one, where books have become antique, a daadi ma item.

10..from no to yes Kshitija M shetty
Two children taste something in their chemistry lab and they are shrunk and how they come back to their original shape forms the story.

11..dont ever study too Madhavi rao
Here is a child who sleeps in the class and doesnt study and tries all tricks to pass the exams and then suddenly finds the papers very easy and passes.

12.the orange G Jyotsna
The writer uses her imagination to create a mystery about a girl travelling beyond..something supernatural.

13..the last Rudraveer reddy.
This is the best of the lot.Its also futuristic and tell us the story of tigers who are vanishing due to humans.what the animals think and how they will finish completely if we dont stop ourselves.

14..humans or Ananya Kumar
Another story about aliens and extinction of earth.
so many stories tel us that children today think about the environment issue.

15..true Aishwarya Ramanath

16..of cats,dogs, natasha Bhaduria
A little about how they became enemies. ha-has Aditya Das

18..vnd's trip to Sanskruti Lakshmi kanth

20..branches of dhawani Yagnaraman
Here is a beautiful story about a tree standing in a park and watching and listening to humans and their stories..

21..vortex of the 2 Rakshita KL
imagination of the children about magic and world of joy.

21.big j and the bus Rizwan M Amlani
This is something I have read many times,I think the child cheated

22..rover the Anangsha saha
A little girl searches for her pet dog.

23..waiting to bloom...By Suhana Khan
This a very beautiful story of a Pollen and what happens to it, how it wishes to bloom.

24..the main'u M Puneeth
A boy encounters a ghost..

25..Sonia and the dream land..byAkansha agarwal
A girl dreaming about an orchard full of chocolates and sweets..I think it is every child's dream to find one.

Worth a read, if one wants to see what our children are thinking and a delight to the children as they can identify themselves.But not all are stories, as according to me an story has a beginning and end, they are ruminations of the children, may be about their pet, their dreams or wishes .Children should read and write something with a message..or moral..because this is the age when they form values which go all the way in their life
