BookBox India Pvt. Ltd. 24, St. François d'Assise Street, Kuruchikuppam, Puducherry 605 012, INDIA
Our mission is to produce animated stories that are powered by Same Language Subtitling (SLS) a scientifically tested and proven approach to help improve reading skills and language learning, ultimately promoting a love for reading. We create content for any audio-visual media platform such as broadcast TV, DVD/VCD, mobile phones, handhelds, internet, and last but not least, print.
AniBooks flow from a simple fact – children love to watch cartoons. Thus, AniBooks are animated stories for children, with the narration appearing on-screen as Same Language Subtitles (SLS). BookBox was founded in 2004 after winning a business plan competition at Stanford University, called, the Social e-Challenge. BookBox has so far produced over 30 AniBooks in over 30 languages and aims to create sufficient content to, eventually, mount TV programs.
In an AniBook, every word is highlighted in perfect timing with the audio, thus reinforcing reading skills, automatically and subconsciously. SLS is a pedagogically sound and proven technique, with known application in early literacy and second language instruction, innovated and pioneered by our partner non-profit PlanetRead (www.planetread.org).
