Parents who are already using the Worldreader app to read bedtime stories to their kids

Lalita Jatwa

“My daughter likes it when I read to her. She asks me to repeat the story 10 times.

When I was in class 9 I got married. There is a lot of difference between when I was a child and for my children growing up.”
