Our Story

BookBox was born in 2004 after winning a business plan competition at Stanford University. We are basically a social enterprise with the vision of creating a “book” for every child around the world in his or her language. We are based out of Pondicherry India and also have a partner office in the US.

We have been on a mission to make reading fun and automatic for children around the world. It is a well known universal fact that children love animation. By adding Same Language Subtitling (SLS) to something that children already love, we are giving them subconscious reading practice.

We therefore create animated stories powered by SLS. We call them ‘AniBooks’. We make these AniBooks available on YouTube, broadcast television, and mobile channels. The platform agnostic quality of AniBooks allows for mass distribution at minimal cost.
